North Hanover Township School District educates the students from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst as well as the students from our local community. These students are supported with Federal Impact Aid. Federal Impact Aid is a payment in lieu of local property tax revenue that is made by the federal government to local school districts who have a federal presence.
North Hanover receives a varying amount of Impact Aid. The funding for any given year is paid out over a number of years, and is subject to the annual congressional appropriation process. The amount to be received is not known in advance, making it a revenue source that is volatile.
