The Borough of Wildwood Crest recently received a substantial financial boost to enhance its infrastructure. Thanks to the County of Cape May’s American Rescue Plan Act Infrastructure Grant program, the borough has been awarded a generous grant of $400,000.
The official presentation of the grant took place during the regular meeting of the Wildwood Crest Board of Commissioners on Wednesday, May 10. Len Desideiro, the Commissioner Director of the Cape May County Board of Commissioners, had the honor of presenting the award to the borough.
This achievement comes after Wildwood Crest submitted an application for the grant earlier this year. The funds obtained through this grant will play a vital role in supporting the ongoing reconstruction of Syracuse Avenue.

Currently, in the construction phase, this project aims to revitalize the infrastructure of Syracuse Avenue by replacing sanitary sewer laterals, mains, services, and manholes. Additionally, the road will undergo milling and paving, spanning from the eastern end of the road at the beach entrance all the way to New Jersey Avenue.
The project is expected to be completed by December 2023, allowing residents and visitors to enjoy improved infrastructure and a smoother transportation experience.
The Cape May County American Rescue Plan Act Infrastructure Grant program prioritizes the development of drinking water, sanitary sewer infrastructure, and stormwater infrastructure. It offers grants of up to $400,000 per municipality to facilitate such vital improvements.
