Burlington County Special Services to get grant to help repair roof

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego, Assemblyman Scott Rudder, and Assembly Chris Brown welcome word that the Burlington County Special Services school district would benefit from a grant from the School Development Authority.

“This funding demonstrates New Jersey’s commitment to the schools,” said Brown. “As a former liaison between the Board of Chosen Freeholders and the county schools, I recognize these are real dollars coming into the district, benefitting the students and local taxpayers.”

With the grant funding of $675,000 from the SDA’s Regular Operating District Grant Program, more than 43,000 square feet of the school building in Lumberton will be re-sided, and the roof will be replaced.

“The investment in the Lumberton campus assures a well-maintained, clean and healthy learning environment,” said Addiego. “Modern and efficient schools are more productive schools.”

The estimated cost of the two projects at the Lumberton campus is $1,687,621. The state grant contributes $675,049, leveraging the local contribution to $1,012,572.

“This is good news for the taxpayers in Burlington County,” said Rudder. “It re-affirms New Jersey’s commitment to education and to our students.”
