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 will continue support for United Way of Central Jersey's (UWCJ) annual campaign to address the critical need for health and human services for residents of Middlesex County and Franklin Township in Somerset County. The grant will help support the programs of 30 community-based agencies to improve child health and development and increase family self-sufficiency. Proceeds from workplace campaigns in the area, corporate gifts, contributions from individual donors (direct mail), distribution of unrestricted funds from the UWCJ's annual regional campaign, and public contracts will supplement this grant.
