BRICK TOWNSHIP — The township has received a community project funding grant to help offset the cost of buses for the Senior Services Dialysis transportation program.
Mayor Lisa Crate said, “This resolution authorizes the insertion of a grant in the amount of $197,344 from the U.S Department of Health and Human Services’ Community Project Funding for the new Senior Services Dialysis transportation.”
