More than three dozen New Jersey colleges will receive $28.5 million in federal COVID-19 relief aid to support innovations leading to increased college completion, Gov. Phil Murphy and state Secretary of Higher Education Brian Bridges said Monday.

In addition, $1.5 million will be made available to 11 colleges in support of the governor’s Hunger-Free Campus initiative.
