It has long been speculated that South Jersey, in comparison to the rest of the State, does not receive a representative share of public funding when one considers population size and taxable property value. Professor Hayes’ study controlled for these factors and others and determined that South Jersey’s most economically distressed municipalities receive significantly less state funding assistance than similarly poor municipalities elsewhere throughout the state. Faculty Fellow Michael Hayes found that the poorest municipalities in South Jersey receive much less state assistance than the poorest municipalities in other areas of the state.
