Wynona’s House funding preserved

TRENTON – In the budget summary accompanying today’s budget address, there are some examples of specific categories and how they will fare in fiscal year 2013.

Wynona’s House, A Newark-based agency which takes care of sexually abused children, will receive $537,000 in state funds to compensate for the same amount in federal funds that are not available in the upcoming fiscal year.

The Drug Court Program, which Gov. Christie prioritized in his State of the State address last month, will be expanded so that access will be available in all 21 counties. The effort will receive an additional $2.5 million.

The Global Warming Solutions Fund, which dropped from $65 million in fiscal year 2011 to zero this fiscal year, is slated to receive $473,000 next fiscal year. That fund represented the proceeds from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which Christie removed the state from last year. Wynona’s House funding preserved
