Thanks to our residents who continue to wear masks and social distance, we have maintained low rates of transmission throughout the summer. If we continue this effort into the fall, I have no doubt that we can emerge from this crisis.”

Norcross, Menendez, Booker Announce $1.4M to Support Camden County’s COVID-19 Response

CHERRY HILL, N.J. – U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross, along with U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker recently announced $1,395,002.66 in Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) grants to the Camden County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to aid the county’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The lawmakers have now secured over $160 million in PA grants to help the state’s pandemic response. The $2 trillion federal emergency stimulus package, known as the CARES Act, included $45 billion for the FEMA Disaster Relief Fund to help states, like New Jersey, which is included in the President’s Major Disaster Declaration, provide for immediate needs and essential services to protect citizens and recover from the outbreak.

“We are still in the midst of a grave health emergency, and our local governments urgently need relief,” said Congressman Norcross. “This critical federal funding will help Camden County cover the unexpected costs of the coronavirus pandemic, including testing and keeping our first responders and other essential workers safe and on the job. I will continue to fight for South Jersey in Congress to ensure our communities get the tools and supplies we need to combat this outbreak and keep residents healthy and secure.”

“Camden County’s first responders, health care workers and other essential workers need the resources to continue protecting their residents and businesses,” said Sen. Menendez“This funding will ensure frontline workers have the personal protective equipment they need to keep themselves and others safe and out of harm’s way. I’ll continue fighting for the federal funds our state needs to beat the pandemic and recover.”

“Communities across New Jersey and our nation continue to work tirelessly in battling this public health crisis, so we have an obligation to ensure they have adequate resources to keep our residents safe,” said Sen. Booker. “The health of our families, frontlines workers, and our economy is dependent on a strong federal response, and I’ll continue to fight for federal funding like this to protect the health and safety of Camden County residents and all New Jerseyans.”
