The application period is now open for Gov. Murphy's "We Value Our Veterans" Community Award.
Many municipalities already recognize veterans in numerous ways. This award provides an additional avenue to honor New Jerseyans who have answered the call to arms in the defense of American values. Through this program, municipalities must accumulate 145 points based on specific criteria in order to qualify for the “We Value Our Veterans” community award. Points towards the designation are awarded in many ways, from providing parking spots for Purple Heart recipients and disabled Veterans, to holding Veteran Service Organization Meet and Greets. The application is online at the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs website.
For questions contact the Dept of Military and Veterans Affairs, Office of Government Relations 609-530-6893.
