September 24th, 2015 by

HCDNNJ_RedOvalLogoWHITEBkgrdThe Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey announced on Sept. 22 that it will award New Jersey Future its Exceptional Community Partner award. According to the Network, the award goes to an organization that works closely with it “to build strong communities and help ensure economic and social justice.”

In making the award announcement, the Network newsletter cited New Jersey Future’s work to foster smart growth and neighborhood revitalization, noting, “New Jersey Future has been a key ally in the fight to protect New Jersey’s fair housing doctrine, especially in Sandy-affected communities.”

“We are very honored to receive this award,” said New Jersey Future Executive Director Peter Kasabach. “We have the greatest respect for all the work the Network does to lift up communities across New Jersey, and it is an ongoing pleasure to work with them on issues about which both organizations care deeply.”

The award will be presented at the Network’s annual Community Development Conference and Membership Meeting Oct. 20. Other award-winners include the boroughs of Somerville and Roselle; Florence and Franklin townships; and Britnee Timberlake, president of the Essex County Board of Chosen Freeholders and founding executive director of Network member Essex Community Land Trust.
