“In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, more New Jerseyans than ever understand what it means to be without a home. That is why I am grateful that these federal resources have been allocated to many of the agencies that deal directly with New Jersey’s homeless men, women and children,” says New Jersey U.S. Senator Bob Menendez, who Chairs the Senate Banking Subcommittee on Housing.

New Jersey U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg adds “This federal funding will help homeless men and women across New Jersey find safe, reliable housing and access services to improve their lives.  Investing in these programs during difficult economic times makes an important commitment to those who are most at-need in our communities.”

Recent data from the Corporation for Supportive Housing shows there are an estimated 11,741 homeless men, women and children across the Garden State.
