The USRA Municipal Alliance is a coalition formed in 2017 through a grant to educate and create awareness in our community. We are a partnership between Upper Saddle River and Allendale, New Jersey. Members consist of parents, school administration, police, health professionals, local businesses, clergy, and members of local community organizations.
We provide funding, programming and resources to Northern Highlands Regional High School, as well as to the middle schools in Allendale and Upper Saddle River. Priorities have included mental health, vaping and opioids.
Learning and working with other local coalitions, our intent is to make Upper Saddle River and Allendale safe and drug-free. Whenever possible, we expand our programming to include the entire quad district.
