The Ocean Wind Pro-NJ Grantor Trust has more, taxpayer-funded cash to hand out.
So who gets these PRO-WIND grants?
One of those who decides as an Ocean Wind Board of Trustee, is Brian Jackson, chief operating officer of Stockton Atlantic City.
Jackson, a resident of Galloway Twp, will help determine the future of Jersey shore towns. Jackson will help review and select recipients of the trust’s second round of funding.
$450,000 has gone to small, women and minority-owned businesses.
$2.8 million went to select Jersey shore towns. For example:
- Ventnor received $546,003
- Margate received $446,880
- Longport received $368,750
Notably, Brigantine and Ocean City have received nothing, most likely due to their push back against experimental, taxpayer-funded, wind turbine farms.
