Essex County College received $11,350,000 from Essex County as part of the $66,507,115 budget for 2013-2014. The county award was unanimously approved during the annual Board of School Estimate meeting held May 14 at the Newark campus. This is the same amount as the county provided the College in the current 2012-2013 budget.
In addition, the Board also unanimously approved $1,250,000 in Chapter XII capital budget money for 2013-2014. The Chapter XII money will be used for minor capital renovations and renewal projects. The remainder of the College’s annual budget comes from tuition & fees and the State of New Jersey, with much smaller amounts from investment income, other income and unexpended operating funds.
