Assembly Members Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey today announced the launch of the first round of grant solicitations for the Library Construction Bond Act. The Act, which authorized $125 million in state bonds, was passed by New Jersey voters in November 2017 to support public libraries providing modern and technologically efficient library facilities.
The bond program will provide funding for projects such as ADA accessibility, major building renovations, and new construction projects. The State Librarian, in consultation with the President of Thomas Edison State University, will be responsible for the administration and oversight of the Library Construction Bond Act grant solicitation.
