Metro Briefing | New Jersey: Trenton: Schools To Get Sept. 11 Aid

December 3, 2001

Thirty-five New Jersey school districts affected by the terror attacks will receive $1.5 million in federal money for psychological counseling and other services, Commissioner Vito A. Gagliaro announced last week. The Fairview district in Bergen County, where students witnessed the attack on the World Trade Center and one staff member lost a son on United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Stony Township, Pa., received the largest grant. It will use most of the $212,000 for counseling.
