“Many families across New Jersey struggle to make ends meet and find, keep, and maintain a healthy home. We must keep investing in our federal housing programs so that every New Jerseyan has a safe place to call home and raise a family,” U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said in a statement.
“All New Jersey families deserve a decent, affordable place to live. These grants are crucial for New Jersey’s public housing authorities to best serve the people who rely on them for safe and stable housing,” added U.S. Senator Cory Booker.
The Jersey City Housing Authority, the largest one in the county, expectedly received the most money: $322,725. The Union City Housing Authority received $120,064, while the North Bergen Housing Authority was in the same ballpark at $113,169.
The remains local allocations are as follows:
Bayonne Housing Authority
Guttenberg Housing Authority
