NEWARK, N.J. – U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker today announced a total of $15,089,588 to public housing authorities across New Jersey to support their work in maintaining and protecting the health and safety of individuals and families living in their facilities. The senators secured this funding in the $2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which allocated $1.25 billion for Tenant-Based Rental Assistance.

“As we continue to battle this public health crisis, it’s critical that 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.”

“At a time when we’re asking everyone to stay home to save lives, we must ensure that everyone has a safe place to call home,” said Sen. Menendez. “This important funding will help ensure that our state’s public housing agencies have the resources they need during this pandemic to protect the safety and well-being of their residents. I’ll continue to fight for additional federal resources New Jersey needs to combat COVID-19.”
