HOBOKEN, NJ - The Hudson County Freeholder Board has approved a payment of over $1.4 million to cover COVID-19 related expenses in Hoboken. According to Freeholder Anthony Romano, the funds for Hoboken will go towards paying salaries for first responders, feeding residents, providing senior services and bolstering preventative health measures citywide.

“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. “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.” 

Hudson County received funding from the federal government through the CARES Act which will be distributed to all municipalities in the county.
