About the Committee

The Municipal Alliance Committee is overseen by the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (GCADA). It is funded by Drug Enforcement Demand Reduction (DEDR) monies collected through fines for drug and alcohol related offenses, in addition to matching funds from the Township and private donations, (please see “Donations Requests” section on how you can help). This funding affords the Municipal Alliance Committee the ability to sponsor programs for the community.

The Alliance works to provide a coordinated effort in promoting and supporting drug and alcohol prevention and education programs, as well as related activities within the community.

Who Are We & What We Do

Recognizing that a community based response is the most effective way to heighten awareness in the areas of self-esteem, substance abuse, character building and other related topics, the New Jersey Municipal Alliance Program was established in 1989. In 1991 the Rockaway Township Municipal Alliance Committee (RTMAC) was created. The Rockaway Township Municipal Alliance Committee is comprised of:

  • Community groups
  • Health Department
  • Individual citizens
  • Police Department
  • School liaisons
Next Meeting - July 1, 2019
