Services program for low-income minorities in New Brunswick, New Jersey, area

Although the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation became a national philanthropy in 1972 and has operated on a national scale since then, it also has continued funding a limited number of local institutions and projects in the New Brunswick area and throughout New Jersey. It does so in part to honor the legacy of its founder, and in part to recognize the special responsibilities to the communities and the state in which it is located.This grant is intended to help underwrite the salary of a nurse and a part-time bilingual secretary at the St. John's Clinic, which is an activity of the New Brunswick office of the Catholic Charities, Diocese of Metuchen. Medical staffing is voluntary, and is provided by residents and attendings from the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. During the grant period, the Clinic expects to institute a sliding-scale fee for the uninsured patients, and to relocate to a suitable facility in its present neighborhood that would meet Medicaid certification requirements so that it could institute Medicaid billings.
