It is critical that we have maximum attendance/participation at the Witherspoon Jackson Neighborhood Association (WJNA) meeting this Saturday (FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH @ 9:30 am), because we will have an important presentation by the Witherspoon Jackson Development Corporation (WJDC), a non-profit local community-based organization whose mission statement AND goal in part, is to provide financial assistance to help long-standing generational homeowners and “OTHERS” from the WJ neighborhood continue to live in Princeton despite sharp increases in property values/taxes and general affordability.

The WJDC has received approximately $1,000,000.00 (One Million Dollars) in funding that has been allocated through a legal court settlement with Princeton University TO BE USED ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY FOR LOW INCOME HOME OWNERS WHO RESIDE IN Princeton’s 20th Historic District, the WJ NEIGHBORHOOD.

These dollars are earmarked to help residents experiencing difficulties with property taxes, tax liens, and major repairs involving safety/security.  Funding can also assist with security deposits or help with rents.

Because of the reluctance of some individuals or families to come forward when faced with life’s many difficult challenges we are making a serious effort to get this important notice out to everyone that may benefit.  Please send personal notes/invites to family and friends.

“Our strength is our DIVERSITY”
