The Hunterdon County Freeholder Board approved the first grants under the new economic development local grant program to Frenchtown and the Raritan Township Municipal Utilities Authority (RTMUA), at the November 20
Freeholder Board Director Matt Holt, in announcing the grants, stated, “A primary goal of the economic development initiative has always been to partner with our municipalities, develop programs in conjunction with them, and to provide tools to help them achieve economic growth. These grants help us strive toward that goal.”
Frenchtown will receive a grant of $6750 to assist the Borough’s zoning review, which is being conducted to ensure that local zoning rules reflect the current economic environment needed to attract and maintain local businesses. Frenchtown provided a 10% match for the grant.
