The 13th Annual HFA Community Neighbor Awards

The Hoboken Family Alliance is now accepting nominations for our 13th annual Community Neighbor Awards to be granted in 2016 at our Cabin Fever Event at Brandt School (215  9th Street, Hoboken, NJ) ,  tentatively scheduled for February  21 , 2016.

Non-profit organizations may apply directly or be nominated by a member of the community. They must be not-for-profit and serve children or families in Hoboken and/or Hudson County. To be considered, the organization must designate what the money will be used for, and how much they are requesting. We request that the money be utilized to directly provide a service for families or children, and not for overhead/administrative costs.   Award recipients will be asked to attend the Cabin Fever Festival on Feb. 21, 2016 (tentative), in Hoboken, to receive their award.

  • Brief description of the program and/or services
