NEWARK, NJ – The Hoboken Housing Authority (HHA) will receive $34,461 in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of a total of more than $18 million secured by Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker, the pair announced Monday.

The funding comes in addition to the $30,160 announced in May, comes through the CARES Act, and will be used to ensure the HHA has the resources needed to maintain a safe and healthy environment during the pandemic for all their residents. 

“The families and elderly New Jerseyans living in our low-income housing communities need our support during the COVID-19 crisis” Menendez said. “If we are going to beat this pandemic, it’s essential that everyone has a reliable place to call home.”

“During this public health crisis and long after the battle is over, we must continue to ensure that all New Jersey families have access to a decent and affordable place to live,” Booker added. “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.”
