Menendez, Booker Announce Over $18M in CARES Act Funding to Support, Protect Families Living in Public Housing across NJ

   

NEWARK, N.J. – U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker today announced $18,740,222 in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to ensure public housing authorities (PHAs) across New Jersey have the resources needed to maintain a safe and healthy environment during the pandemic for all their residents. This funding, which is in addition to the $15 million announced in May, was secured by the senators in the CARES Act.

“The families and elderly New Jerseyans living in our low-income housing communities need our support during the COVID-19 crisis and this funding will make sure their residencies are healthy and safe places to live,” said Sen. Menendez. “If we are going to beat this pandemic, it’s essential that everyone has a reliable place to call home. We must continue investing in our federal housing programs so that every New Jerseyan has a roof over their heads.”

“During this public health crisis and long after the battle is over, we must continue to ensure that all New Jersey families have access to a decent and affordable place to live,” said Sen. Booker. “Federal funding like this is needed now more than ever to help New Jersey’s public housing authorities best serve the people who rely on them for safe and stable housing.”
