First Time Home Buyer Program
Administered by the Camden County Improvement Authority
Presented by the Camden County Board of Freeholders
The First Time Home Buyer Program promotes home ownership for low and moderate income first home buyers. The program is intended to assist purchasers by providing financial assistance in purchasing a home for the first time in the form of a deferred loan.
Level of Assistance
The County will provide an interest-free, deferred loan not to exceed $10,000. Loans will be payable to the Camden County Improvement Authority upon transfer of property title. Loans are forgivable upon demonstrated five (5) years of successful occupancy from the date of the ownership. Recipients of HOME funds are required to maintain the unit as their principal residence for the duration of the deferred loan.

Water-In-Action - 1:00 pm
See water in action as our guest presenters show what happens with rain, run-off and pollution using a hands-on Enviroscape mini-neighborhood model… and hear about many watershed issues. You and your children will love seeing what happens all around us each rainstorm, as water and “pollutants” run down the model. Presented by Maggie McCann, Camden County’s Environmental Educator, and Jessica Aubry, an AmeriCorps NJ Watershed Ambassador. Then you can join a short guided walk next to a nearby wetland and Newton Lake, as we talk about water issues (the walk is weather permitting). For more information contact Lois Giovacchini at email@example.com
Our Creeks, Streams and Rivers – 2:30 pm
Learn about our waterways, watersheds and what we can do to help water quality. Hear about issues such as wildlife, water quality, river-side buffers, pollution, and rain gardens. Hear why some of our lakes are so full of green algae in the summer. Learn what watershed you live in, and where your property’s rain runoff goes. Also hear about the upcoming watershed tour, and about training for water quality testing. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Rain Garden Workshop – 3:30PM
Did you ever want to build a rain garden but didn’t know where to begin? How deep? Is my soil OK or do I have to change it? What plants? What IS a rain garden anyway?? Hear how to do it from an expert… come with questions! You can learn how to improve water quality, and do your part to improve the water cycle and habitat in our area.

8th Annual Pasta Dinner to benefit the Paul F. Gilligan III Scholarship Fund
Join us on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 for the eighth annual Pasta Dinner to Benefit the Paul F. Gilligan III Scholarship Fund in the Haddon Township High School Cafeteria. Dinner will be provided by Carrabba’s Italian Grill of Maple Shade. Your choice of desserts and beverages will follow. The raffle will feature over 35 wonderful, valuable gift baskets thanks to generous community and business donations. Dinner tickets are available for a $25.00 donation. The dinner is from 6:30 to 8:30 P.M. The gift baskets will be on display starting at 4:00 P.M. giving you the opportunity to participate in the raffle without staying for dinner.
The Fund was formed to support educational purposes by commemorating the life of Paul F. Gilligan III and awarding scholarships and fellowships at Haddon Township High School and at Harvard University, Paul’s two alma maters. These awards are given by Committees at HaddonTownship and at Harvard to students who embody the qualities possessed by Paul: academic achievement combined with a love for participation in physical activity and athletic competition, along with strength of character exemplified by a sense of good sportsmanship. Paul will be honored this month at the Haddon Township High School Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and banquet.
At Haddon Township High School’s graduation in June 2013, the Fund awarded two $2000.00 per-year four year scholarships to graduating seniors Patrick Burns, now attending Penn State University, and Cassidy Leyendecker, now attending the University of Notre Dame. For more information and/or to purchase tickets, please contact Paul or Jacqui at firstname.lastname@example.org or 856-854-6503 and visit our website www.paulgilliganscholarship.com.
