Grant Letters of Support

The Bergen County Workforce Development Board (Bergen WDB) supports its local community in their efforts to seek grant funding. If you are pursuing a grant and need a Letter of Support for a grant application, The WDB Executive Director will provide one when appropriate. Each request is given fair consideration; paying attention to the programmatic, fiscal, administrative, and legal aspects of the proposal as well as the anticipated outcomes.

All Letters of Support will be provided via email to the Requestor, and a hard copy can be provided by mail upon request.

As a courtesy, requests should be submitted at least ten (10) business days before the grant application deadline. The Bergen WDB cannot guarantee that requests submitted without sufficient time will be reviewed or approved.
