Trinity Episcopal Church to Receive $49k
Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande responded to the announcement that the Trinity Episcopal Church in Asbury Park would receive a 2012 Historic Preservation Grant for $49,350.
“I know that these monies are needed and will be greatly appreciated,” Beck said. “The century old structure has been a corner stone to the community. The membership and leadership of the church are a diverse resource and this grant will help preserve this institution for years to come.”
“Trinity Church is one of Asbury Park’s great historic churches,” said Casagrande. “From anti hunger and after school programs to beach cleanups, it has served the residents of that community for over a hundred years. This grant money will enable them to make necessary repairs to continue their important work.”
“Asbury Park has such a rich history and Trinity Church is an important part of the city’s past and present,” said Angelini. “I am pleased that Trinity will receive funding to help preserve this wonderful, historic building that is part of the fabric of the city.”
Funding for the 2012 grant round is provided for by the Garden State Preservation Trust Fund, which was created to preserve open space, farmland and historic sites with money raised through voter-approved bond referendums. The New Jersey Historic Trust, a DCA affiliate, administers the historic grants from the Trust Fund.
