Thursday, July 17, 2014

Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey is making an investment of nearly $1 million in the state’s urban communities, the health insurer has announced.

Horizon BCBSNJ is working with the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs through its Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit program, supporting projects in Newark, Jersey City and Camden. The program is designed to speed the revitalization of distressed communities, with program funds going to neighborhood-based nonprofits.

“Horizon has been New Jersey’s leading health insurance company for more than 80 years, and we are committed to giving back to the communities we serve throughout the state,” said Robert A. Marino, Chairman and CEO of Horizon BCBSNJ. “The NRTC program allows Horizon to invest in projects that will help revitalize three of New Jersey’s major cities.”
