New Jersey continues to combat autism.  The state is currently accepting applications for $8 million dollars worth of grants through the Governor’s Council for Medical Research and Treatment of Autism.

The grants will be used to expand the research, treatment and prevention of autism spectrum disorders.  The money will also be used to establish the creation of an Autism Center of Excellence Coodinating Center and several program sites.

The money will be handed out over the course of five years, and is made possible by a $1 surcharge on fines and penalities from traffic violations. 

“An estimated 1 in 94 New Jersey children have autism spectrum disorder,” said Health and Senior Services Commissioner Mary E. O’Dowd.
