West Windsor Township Announces
Receipt of a $15,000 grant from the NJ Department of Community Affairs
For Recreational Opportunities for Individuals with Disabilities
Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh is pleased to announce that the Township of West Windsor has received a grant in the amount of $15,000 from the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs to continue to offer recreational opportunities for individuals with disabilities. According to Mayor Hsueh, the Township applied for grant funding due to a “demonstrated need” within the West Windsor Township area to expand recreational programs for disabled residents, especially children and young adults. The Township’s Manager of Parks & Recreation, Ken Jacobs, and representatives from the West Windsor Recreation Commission met with parent organizations to plan and promote these programs.
The grant will allow West Windsor Township Recreation to continue to offer such programs as Adapted Aquatics, Therapeutic Equestrian Program, Adapted Multi-Sports Clinic, Adapted Martial Arts, Social Events and more. Mayor Hsueh stated, “I would like to thank the Department of Community Affairs for approving this grant and allowing West Windsor to expand its recreational program offerings to individuals with special needs.”
