Karen Ann Quinlan Memorial Foundation Receives USDA Support For Hospice Facility
Mt. Lauren, NJ – August 20, 2012 – USDA Rural Development State Director Howard Henderson announces Karen Ann Quinlan Memorial Foundation in Sussex County will receive $2,300,000 through the Community Facilities program to construct a 10 bed hospice care inpatient facility. The State Director made the announcement during his visit to the Foundation.
The facility will provide hospice general inpatient care to residents in Sussex and Warren Counties in New Jersey as well as Pike County in Pennsylvania. This will be the region’s first free standing in-patient hospice home and is expected to be completed in 2013. Julia Quinlan, Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice co-founder and mother of Karen Ann was on-hand to share her enthusiasm and gratitude for their support as well as the support the hospice has received from the community for this project.
“This project represents continuing efforts by the Obama Administration to help create jobs while helping families in rural communities,” Henderson said. “Since 2009, our agency has invested over $850 million in loans and grants throughout the Garden State.”
USDA, through its Rural Development mission area, administers and manages more than 40 housing, business and community infrastructure and facility programs. These programs are designed to improve the economic stability of rural communities, businesses, residents, farmers and ranchers and improve the quality of life in rural America.
