“I would like to thank the federal government, County Executive Tom DeGise and my colleagues on the Freeholder Board for helping us to deliver critical funds to our residents,” Romano said in a statement.

“I will continue to do everything in my power to deliver relief to our residents and small businesses during this crisis. Currently, I am seeking an additional two million dollars to help our small businesses that are hurting greatly right now.”

Last week, the freeholder board unanimously approved $1,493,288 in CARES funding for Hoboken.

The only Hudson County municipality that did not receive an allocation last week was East Newark.

The other CARES funding approvals are as follows:







Jersey City




North Bergen




Union City




West New York
