The NJEIFP has received numerous Letters of Intent and Environmental Planning Documents pursuant to the original deadline of October 4, 2010 for participation in the SFY2012 Financing Program. In an effort to increase the number of projects funded in SFY 2012, the NJEIFP is accepting additional projects by extending the Letter of Intent deadline to March 7, 2011 all projects. Please note: Letters of Intent for Barnegat Bay storm water projects are also due on March 7, 2011.
Letters of Intent received after the above deadlines will render a project ineligible to participate in the SFY2012 Financing Program.
