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 annual grant by the Foundation to the United Way of Central Jersey (UWCJ) will address the most critical health and human service needs of residents in Middlesex County and in Franklin Township, Somerset County. Funding priorities for September 1, 2008, to August 31, 2009, are programs operated by 63 local UWCJ agencies that help children succeed, develop family self-sufficiency and provide health care, specialized services and community supports for older adults and persons with disabilities.
