Folk Arts Program

The Northeastern New Jersey Folk Arts Program, one of seven such programs throughout the state, pursues activities that preserve and present the cultural heritage of northeastern New Jersey. It was established in January 1999 through an infrastructure grant by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. It is by design a folk arts resource center for the northeastern part of New Jersey, directly responsible to the five urban counties of Hudson, Bergen, Essex, Union and Passaic.
