Re: New Content on DLGS Web Site
The following changes have taken place on the DLGS website:
1. EECBG Program: Every municipality and county in New Jersey that was not a direct recipient of a Federal Stimulus American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant, is entitled to up to $20,000, with absolutely no match requirement, through ARRA's Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants (EECBG) Program. THESE FUNDS ARE ONLY GUARANTEED TO BE AVAILABLE UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2010. The Clean Energy Program's website has a list of eligible municipalities and counties
For more information, please contact the NJ Clean Energy Program at: 866-NJSMART, ext. 4.
2. A recent website change moved all information regarding the Basic Course in Land Use Law and Planning to the Division of Local Government Services web page under "Programs" at www.state.nj.us/dca/lgs or directly at www.nj.gov/dca/lgs/planning_zoning_education. Please share this information with the appropriate Land Use Administrative staff in your organization.
3. The Division of Taxation has extended the deadline for filing 2009 Homestead Benefit Applications to January 3, 2011. Members of the PUBLIC who need assistance can call the Homestead Benefit Hotline (1-888-238-1233).
4. The DEP Bulletin contains a list of construction permit applications recently filed or acted upon by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The latest issue was released December 1, 2010. This issue can be viewed online at: www.nj.gov/dep/bulletin/bu2010_1201.pdf.
Very truly yours,
