How are the applications funded?

Applications are cost-shared by the State, County, and municipality. The State typically funds up to 70% of applications using monies from the recently passed Garden State Trust Fund. The local share is typically split by the County and the municipality equally using government bonds, dedicated taxes, and or other sources of funding.
