NJ Historic Trust Funding

Over two years has passed since the previous bond measure of "stop gap" fnding for the Garden State Preservation Trust, and Trust's grant funding is running dry. GSPT remains without a long-term funding source, putting the fund and its historic preservation and open space and farmland conservation activites at risk once again. The Keep It Green Campaign, representing over 160 statewide, regional, and local organizations (including Preservation New Jersey) is again advocating for long-term, stable GSPT funding of at least $200 million annually for 20 years or more. Join the campaign or donate at or on Facebook.
