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.Middlesex County and Franklin Township in Somerset are communities of great affluence and great need. The United Way of Central Jersey annual program allocations assure the availability of services to individuals and families in need. This support helps ensure the availability of services to residents of New Brunswick, Perth Amboy, Carteret, Edison, Woodbridge and Franklin Township. Priority funding areas for July 1, 2007, through June 30, 2008, will include programs that foster self-sufficiency, help children succeed, provide care for seniors and support people with disabilities. .
