Boyd & Morse Infrastructure Project

In 2009, CFDA began working with St. Joseph’s Carpenter Society (SJCS) to transform an area once know as “The Alley”, one of the most notorious drug areas in the City of Camden during the 1990’s, into a safe and vibrant community.  The Boyd and Morse Streets Infrastructure Project was achieved through a strategic partnership between CFDA, SJCS, and The Reinvestment Fund Development Partners, in conjunction with the City of Camden, Camden Redevelopment Agency, Camden Economic Recovery Board, New Jersey Housing & Mortgage Finance Agency, Camden Churches Organized for People, and the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.

CFDA and its partners worked to replace, rehabilitate, and/or construct infrastructure to complement the housing plan that SJCS had developed for the area. The Boyd and Morse Streets Infrastructure Project included flooding mitigation and the construction of new streets, alleys, and water and sewer lines. Working under a tight timeframe, these infrastructure improvements provided the necessary public improvements to support the construction of 45 new units of housing and the rehabilitation of 45 additional units in the neighborhood by SJCS. To fund the project, CFDA secured $3.57 million from the Camden Economic Recovery Board (ERB).
