U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Bob Menendez (both D-NJ) have announced over $19 million in funding for seven different Hudson County housing authorities, specifically to preserve, repair, and modernize affordable homes.
“Families across New Jersey deserve to live in safe, quality, reliable and affordable housing. This federal funding will build up our communities, boost our economy and empower our families to fulfill their potential,” Menendez said in a statement.
