Supreme Court won’t hear case challenging grant program that excluded historic churches
SALT LAKE CITY — Can taxpayer money go toward repairs for historic churches?
The Supreme Court won't answer that question — at least not yet.
Justices announced Monday they won't hear a case involving a historic preservation grant program in Morris County, New Jersey, which has excluded churches since April 2018. In their petition to the court, officials and churches in the area argued that this ban on religious applicants represents unlawful discrimination.
