Great news coming in from our Director of Human Service, Melissa Urias.
"The State of New Jersey Department of Human Services has recently announced a new program, the Covid-19 Housing Assistant Program aimed at assisting tenants and homeowners affected by the pandemic with paying housing costs. To be eligible for the program, applicants must:

ยท Live in NJ;
ยท Have a valid lease or mortgage;
ยท Prove that they could not pay rent/mortgage due to the
pandemic; and
