The Fairness Formula: Equal Funding for Every Child, Our Path to Lower Property Taxes
 
Join Governor Christie’s Fairness Formula solution to New Jersey’s two most pressing crises that are hurting all New Jerseyans: the failure of urban education and property taxes. The Governor’s monumental Fairness Formula will provide equal education funding for every pupil throughout the state, valuing every child equally.
 
75% of all New Jersey districts would get more state aid than they do today. The biggest driver of New Jersey’s nation-high property taxes is the ineffective and unfair state school funding formula. The Fairness Formula will not only be equal for students it may also provide hundreds or even thousands of dollars in annual property tax savings for New Jerseyans in most communities. Join the movement today to begin your path to lower property taxes.

Christie Sandy Recovery Pic
Christie Administration Announces Expansion Of Domestic Violence Services Following Superstorm Sandy


Nearly $4.8 Million In Federal Funds Will Bolster State’s Programs For Transitional Housing, Violence Prevention And Treatment Services

 

For Immediate Release                                                                Contact: Michael Drewniak

Thursday, October 3, 2013                                                                                Colin Reed

                                                                                                                     609-777-2600

 

Trenton, NJ – To ensure that Sandy-impacted families have access to adequate social services, New Jersey Department of Children and Families (DCF) Commissioner Allison Blake announced that the state will use nearly $4.8 million in federal funds to augment some of the state’s domestic violence prevention and treatment programs.

 

“As we know from previous natural disasters, a family’s ability to cope is often stretched to its limit as they try to recover,” said Commissioner Blake. “These funds will ensure that domestic violence victims made increasingly vulnerable after Sandy have expanded programs and services throughout New Jersey.”

 

Research and past occurrences indicate that many children and families experience negative psychological and social impacts following disasters. These effects often include an increase in the incidence of domestic violence due to the stress associated with disaster recovery.

“The stress from a disaster can have a long lasting impact on affected families,” said Mary E. O’Dowd, New Jersey Health Commissioner. “The Department of Health and DCF are working collaboratively to ensure that women and children have comprehensive services to support them during recovery.”

“Domestic violence can impact anyone, and people with disabilities - predominantly women - are particularly vulnerable,” said Department of Human Services Commissioner Jennifer Velez. “This project expands the resources available to individuals who need help and provides recovery tools to help keep them safe in the long term."

 

The grants will provide alternative housing assistance for victims and children, such as victims who may have had to return to living arrangements where there was previous abuse, or a family that was newly exposed to abuse as a result of the impact of the storm. Additionally, the funding will be used to provide counseling and supportive services to victims and families. Services include safety planning, referrals, case management, financial education, child care and transportation.

 

Nearly $4 million in funds comes from a federal Social Service Block Grant (SSBG) awarded to New Jersey after Sandy. The additional money is from a Family Violence Prevention Service Act (FVPSA) grant.

 

New Jersey has at least one domestic violence shelter in each county with a total of twenty-two shelters that provide residential and non-residential services throughout the state.

 

“Our long-term recovery goal is to effectively and comprehensively enhance prevention and intervention efforts in impacted areas to lessen the negative social impacts Superstorm Sandy may have on our affected residents,” said Commissioner Blake. “Keeping children safe and families strong is essential to New Jersey’s recovery.”

 

DCF is the state’s agency dedicated to ensuring the safety, well-being and success of children, youth, families and communities. DCF’s Division of Family and Community Partnerships oversees the state’s domestic violence programs. There is at least one DCF-designated lead domestic violence program, including a shelter with a 24-hour hotline and response, in each of New Jersey’s 21 counties. Information and referral, counseling, support groups, financial, legal, housing, children’s services, community education and general advocacy are also provided. To learn more and to view a list of services by county, visit: http://www.state.nj.us/dcf/families/dfcp/index.html.

 

The New Jersey Statewide Domestic Violence Hotline operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The toll-free number is 1-800-572-SAFE (7233).

What They’re Saying:
“A Sensible Approach”
Governor Christie’s Recovery Action Plan Is “A Positive Message To Homeowners And Business Owners” That “Help Is On The Way”
 
__________________________________________________
 
 
United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Spokesman Adam Glantz: “…said New Jersey did ‘outstanding work’ in filing the plan well before the three-month deadline and said the agency plans a swift review.” (MaryAnn Spoto, “N.J. sends feds its plan for $1.8B in Hurricane Sandy funds,” Star-Ledger, 3/13/13)
 
·         “We’ll do our best to fast-track it and get the money out to the people who desperately need it…”
 
The Star-Ledger: “New Jersey just gave the feds its blueprint for how it wants to distribute these recovery funds, and overall, it takes a sensible approach. The first $1.8 billion in federal grants will be focused on housing and helping small businesses get back on their feet.” (Editorial, “Overall, NJ's Sandy plan takes sensible approach,” Star-Ledger Editorial Board, 3/17/13)
 
·         “Putting the state in charge of these grants makes sense, because it’s best equipped to handle the billions at stake.”
 
The Record: “The Christie administration last week announced precisely how it wants to spend its initial, $1.8 billion installment of federal Sandy aid. If there is an overall theme to the governor's plan, it's to refurbish the Jersey Shore as quickly as possible.” (Editorial, “Moving quickly on restoration,”The Record Editorial Board, 3/17/13)
 
·         “Rebuilding grants of up to $150,000 would go to qualified homeowners. … Grants of that magnitude can be a godsend for homeowners financially struggling more than four months after superstorm Sandy. They also would help many owners elevate their properties to meet new flood standards. That's crucial, because homeowners who don't elevate may face insurance premiums of an estimated $31,000 a year.”
 
·         “Another proposed program offers $10,000 grants to homeowners who agree to stay in their homes. … We agree that maintaining a community's ‘fabric’ is desirable.”
 
·         “The administration does propose about $250 million to help rebuild and redevelop rental housing, with a majority of the money earmarked for low- and moderate-income people. More money may be needed in the future, but this is a reasonable start.”
 
·         “No matter how the administration's blueprint turns out, it's going to happen quickly. The goal is to begin implementing it on April 15. …The thousands impacted by Sandy need assistance as fast as they can get it.”
 
The Press of Atlantic City: “[I]t was good news that Gov. Chris Christie's administration has moved quickly to file a plan for disbursing the first round of federal flood aid - $1.8 billion in community block grants. In early February, states affected by Sandy were given 90 days to file action plans with the federal government. New Jersey submitted its plan Tuesday - well ahead of the deadline.” (Editorial, “Sandy aid plan / Help is on the way,”Press of Atlantic City, 3/17/13)
 
·         “One positive aspect of the plan is that the money will be administered by the state, rather than going to county and municipal governments. With billions of dollars at stake, it is important that a central administration be accountable for how it is spent. (This is New Jersey, after all.)”
 
·         “For those whose lives were turned upside down by Sandy, the fact that New Jersey has filed its plan is one more indication, at least, that help is on the way.”
 
New Jersey Business & Industry Association President Philip Kirschner “We thank Governor Christie for coming to the aid of New Jersey’s small businesses in their time of greatest need … Even now, nearly five months after the storm hit, there are still many businesses throughout the state struggling to recover from its devastating impacts.  The Governor’s actions will help get them up and running again.” (New Jersey Business & Industry Association Press Release, 3/15/13)
 
·         “We have heard from many businesses affected by Sandy, and the fact is that grants are key to getting them back on their feet…”
 
·         “Many businesses impacted by Sandy have been severely damaged and cannot take on more debt.  These grants are just what they need to rebuild.”
 
The National Federation of Independent Businesses New Jersey State Director Laurie Ehlbeck: “…said the announcement sends a positive message to homeowners and business owners nervous about how post-Sandy regulatory changes might affect their rebuilding efforts.” (Jared Kaltwasser, “Business groups applaud Christie course on federal Sandy aid,NJBIZ, 3/14/13)
 
·         “This is hopeful to us, because it shows me that at least the people up there making decisions are conscious of the issues that businesses have in their attempts to reopen or rebuild…”
 
New Jersey State Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President Michael Egenton: “…said he's pleased with the $25 million allocated for tourism marketing. He said the money would supersede a supplemental appropriation bill aimed at funding the effort.” (Jared Kaltwasser, “Business groups applaud Christie course on federal Sandy aid,”NJBIZ, 3/14/13)
 
·         “We want to make sure before the summer season is in high gear there's proper marketing. Businesses are open. The Shore is open, and we want to make sure we don't lose those tourism dollars.”

ICYMI – Latino Leadership Alliance Unanimously Backs Gov. Christie
 
The Latino Leadership Alliance PAC (LLA-PAC), the political arm of the Latino Leadership Alliance of NJ (LLANJ) offered a historic endorsement today of Governor Christie's re-election campaign. The traditionally Democrat-leaning group, and most prominent Latino organization in New Jersey, previously backed Democrat Jon Corzine in 2009 and has never before backed a Republican candidate for any statewide office. Additionally, the Alliance has never endorsed a gubernatorial candidate of either party with the full, unanimous backing.

Today's important endorsement is a clear indication that Governor Christie understands the importance of building and incorporating all coalitions in order to better solve today's issues. Our shared prosperity, not only in the state of New Jersey, but in our great country, lies not only in our industries and our businesses but also in our great diversity. It is important that Republicans, as a national party, continue to forge these partnerships in our communities in order to make our party as diverse as the population it seeks to represent.

“We are heartened that we finally have a Governor who is truly committed to
ensuring that New Jersey government is as diverse as the State's population...
The Governor is effective because he has been able to set aside rigid partisan
political boundaries to address the needs of the people, from the victims of
Hurricane Sandy, to the needs of small businessmen and women. Governor
Christie has demonstrated without a doubt that he understands the needs of
the Latino community."

“It’s been the Republican Party that has always stood at the forefront of choice for parents on educational opportunity and it’s been the Republican Party that has always believed in the rights of the individual,” the governor said. “And that everyone here in the Latino community, a community that is steeped in faith, understands that our faith in the country comes from the power of the individual to be able to pursue their faith openly, vigorously, and in way they believe helps to build and strengthen their families.” see full articlehere

Governor Chris Christie Follows Through on Commitment to Reclaim Lives with Landmark, Bipartisan Mandatory Drug Court Law
Phased-In Program will Provide Mandatory Treatment in All 21 Counties
 
Thursday, July 19, 2012
 
Trenton, NJ – Today, Governor Chris Christie followed through on his commitment to take a smarter and more effective approach in how the state treats drug-addicted offenders by signing into law landmark, bipartisan legislation to put in place a statewide, mandatory drug court program. The legislation, S-881, acts on the principles laid out by Governor Christie in his January State of the State Address – that no life is disposable and that it is a commonsense, fiscal, and moral imperative to help individuals dealing with drug addiction reclaim their lives with treatment, rather than warehousing them in prison.
 
“When I outlined this proposal six months ago, I made it clear that our commitment to our most vulnerable was not just a matter of dollars and cents, it was about reclaiming lives. No life is disposable and every life can be redeemed, but not if we ignore them,” said Governor Christie. “Once again by putting people before partisanship, we are providing optimism and hope to individuals and families torn apart by addiction. Once fully phased in over 5 years, this program will provide mandatory drug treatment to appropriate offenders who are not a threat to society and who suffer from the disease of addiction – redeeming lives and healing families.”
 
Working in a bipartisan manner with the legislature to move forward on this critical issue, Governor Christie secured passage of this legislation that enables a statewide, mandatory drug court program to be implemented over the course of 5 years. Beginning one year after the enactment of the bill, the Administrative Director of the Courts will select 3 vicinages to begin the expansion, followed by the addition of 3 vicinages each year over the period of phase-in.
 
The Governor’s plan for drug court expansion was first announced in his 2012 State of the State Address and reaffirmed in his Fiscal Year 2013 Budget Address when he called drug addiction a treatable disease and dedicated an additional $2.5 million in funding for program expansion. That funding was secured in the Fiscal Year 2013 Budget signed into law by the Governor in June. 
 
The program builds on the success of New Jersey’s highly successful drug court program, by expanding it to provide mandatory treatment for drug-addicted offenders throughout all 21 New Jersey counties. While effective, the existing program only accommodates 1,400 new participants per year. As a voluntary program, it fails to overcome the biggest obstacle to addiction treatment – denial.
 
“We will no longer simply warehouse individuals in prison who are not a threat to society while the underlying cause of their criminality goes unaddressed. And we won’t wait for them to come to the conclusion that they need treatment on their own. With this legislation we are building on our record of reducing recidivism, reclaiming lives by breaking the vicious cycle of crime and addiction, and doing so in a way that is less costly and more effective in getting results,” said Governor Christie. 
 
"Continuing to look to imprisonment as the only solution for nonviolent drug offenders is not only more costly to our taxpayers, but fails to deal with the underlying problem in these individuals’ lives in the first place," said Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, a primary sponsor of the legislation. "By expanding on the success of the voluntary drug court program and reaching even more people through mandatory treatment in their sentencing, we can save taxpayer dollars and, more importantly, help these individuals get their lives back. I thank the Governor and my fellow bill sponsors for their work and commitment to making this important reform a reality for our state."
 
According to their October 2010 Drug Court Report, the rate at which drug court graduates are re-arrested for a new indictable offense is 16% and the reconviction rate is 8%. This is compared to re-arrest rates for drug offenders released from prison that stands at 54% with a re-conviction rate of 43%. According to that report, an average institutional cost per inmate is approximately $38,900, whereas the cost for an active drug court participant is roughly $11,379.
 
Under this legislation, mandatory participation in a drug treatment program for eligible nonviolent, drug-addicted offenders could be sentenced by a judge, regardless of whether they apply for admission to the drug court program.
 
The law also requires that within one year following the effective date, and annually for five years thereafter, the Administrative Director of the Courts must submit an evaluation of the program to the Governor and the Legislature. The report will include completion and recidivism rates, implementation costs, and any other information relevant to the success of the program.
 
In addition, the legislation provides for:
 


  • Increased identification of eligible drug addicted nonviolent offenders. As part of this effort, information on drug addiction and treatment would be required to be given to those charged with second and third drug degree offenses.  
  • Court ordered clinical assessment to determine suitability for drug court. Pre-sentencing reports would be required to include information regarding drug addiction and recommendations regarding whether an assessment should be ordered for a defendant.
  • Courts to make a finding regarding addiction for any offender having a clinical assessment. If offenders are found to be drug addicted, meeting present drug court eligibility factors and are prison bound, then those offenders would be sentenced to the drug court program regardless of their desire to enter the program.


 


  • Judges to be given ultimate discretion in determining whether an individual poses a threat to society and should not be sent to a drug treatment facility as part of his or her sentencing.


Primary sponsors of the bill are Senator Raymond Lesniak (D-Union), Senator Nicholas Scutari (D-Middlesex, Somerset and Union), Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Hunterdon and Mercer), Assemblyman Gordon Johnson (D-Bergen), Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-Union), and Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi (R-Bergen and Passaic).

Providing For Those In Need
Governor Christie Is Committed To Protecting New Jersey’s Most Vulnerable Citizens
 
 
PROVIDING A SECOND CHANCE TO NON-VIOLENT OFFENDERS
 
 
Expanding The Drug Court Program For Non-Violent Offenders:
 
 
Governor Christie followed through on his commitment to take a smarter and more effective approach in how the state treats drug-addicted offenders by signing into law landmark, bipartisan legislation to put in place a statewide, mandatory Drug Court program. The legislation, S-881, acts on the principles laid out by Governor Christie in his January State of the State Address – that no life is disposable and that it is a common sense, fiscal, and moral imperative to help individuals dealing with drug addiction reclaim their lives with treatment, rather than warehousing them in prison.
 
 
·         Through the Fiscal Year 2013 budget, Governor Christie provided an additional $2.5 millionin funding.
·         The program will be phased in over 5 years and additional drug courts will be established so that access will be available in all 21 counties.
 
 
In addition, the legislation provides for:
 
 
·         Increased identification of eligible drug addicted non-violent offenders.
·         Court ordered clinical assessment to determine suitability for drug court.
·         Courts to make a finding regarding addiction for any offender having a clinical assessment.
·         The court to consider a defendant’s cooperation in the process of drug treatment and assessment in sentencing.
·         Judges to be given ultimate discretion in determining whether an individual poses a threat to society and should not be sent to a drug treatment facility as part of his or her sentencing.
 
 
A Smarter Approach To Helping Ex-Offenders Re-Enter Society:
 
 
To address the current lack of coordination among the many treatment and re-entry programs across State government, Governor Christie signed Executive Order 83, creating the Governor’s Task Force for Recidivism Reduction. The primary functions of the task force will be:
 
 
·         Collecting and analyzing performance data from various State departments for budgeting, programming and procurement purposes.
·         Developing recommendations for the Governor regarding how best to ensure the effectiveness and success of New Jersey’s efforts towards recidivism reduction
·         Undertaking an initial benchmarking study of existing program effectiveness and performance, and the development and implementation of a system to measure program effectiveness in an ongoing, real-time way.
 
 
Ongoing Program Assessment And A Real-Time Recidivism Database:
 
 
The path forward to improve prisoner re-entry requires the Administration to gauge the successes, failures and the depth of gaps in program delivery – inside and outside of prison. Programming gaps will be rectified by expanding existing, successful programs and hitting capacity thresholds, particularly relating to program delivery within prison.
 
 
·         Data will be used to populate a real-time recidivism database, which will allow the Administration to track outcomes for individuals and trends and level of effectiveness in programs in a real-time manner.
 
 
ENSURING THE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF OUR MOST VULNERABLE
 
 
Increasing Access to Health Centers:
 
 
Governor Christie is increasing funding for Health Centers in fiscal year 2013 by $3.6 million. The Christie Administration is supporting FQHCs with $50 million in reimbursement for providing care to the uninsured—a record high:
 
 
·         More than 400,000 patients receive care at 20 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) with 95 licensed satellite sites that provide well woman, dental, pediatric and other health exams;
·         75% of those who receive health care through FQHCs are women and children; and
·         The total number of patient visits each year exceeds 1.3 million. Nearly half of the patients are uninsured and 41% are on Medicaid.
 
 
Funding New Jersey’s Hospitals:
 
 
Providing the necessary resources to keep safety net hospitals operating, while recognizing that all hospitals provide care to the uninsured and underinsured, remains the principle behind hospital funding in fiscal year 2013. In response to concerns expressed by hospitals, fiscal year 2013 charity care payments will again be tied to the level of charity care provided during the most recent calendar year for which claims data is available. The amended distribution formula continues the principles of:
 
 
·         Transparency: Distribution of subsidy amounts will be shared with the industry early in the year.
·         Predictability: A portion of the proposed fiscal year 2013 subsidy will be based on the fiscal year 2012 subsidy.
·         Equity: A portion of the subsidy will be based on the change in documented charity care from the prior year 2009 to the base year 2010 and no single hospital is significantly advantaged or disadvantaged.
 
 
Despite economic challenges facing the state, hospital funding will be maintained at the enhanced fiscal year 2012 level.A total of $956 million has been provided in the FY 2013 budget for hospital funding through Charity Care, Graduate Medical Education support and Hospital Relief Subsidy Fund.
 
 
·        In addition $30 million will be made available through Hospital Stabilization Aid.
 
 
Increased Funding For Nursing Homes:
 
 
Governor Christie is increasing state funding for nursing home reimbursements by $15 million over fiscal year 2012. Combined with federal matching funds, this represents $30 million in additional resources available.
 
 
WorkFirst New Jersey:
 
 
WorkFirst NJ emphasizes work as the first step toward building a new life and a brighter future. The goal is to help people get off welfare, secure employment and become self-sufficient, through job training, education and work activities. WorkFirst NJ provides temporary cash assistance and other support services to families through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program.
 
 
·         Under Workfirst NJ, the fiscal year 2013 budget is increasing State and federal funding by $5 million for subsidized child care for eligible families regardless of where the child resides.
 
 
Giving Families the Tools to Succeed:
 
 
Family Success Centers are community-based grassroots organizations that provide services ranging from basic needs like day care and parenting classes, to more complex needs such as accessing mental health support, domestic violence prevention and substance abuse services.
 
 
·         Governor Christie protected funding at $9.5 million in State funds along with $2.5 million in federal funds. The number of Family Success Centers in New Jersey will increase from 42 to 49.
 
 
Increased Funding To NJCEED:
 
 
The New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED) Program provides cancer outreach, education, screening, tracking and follow-up services to individuals 18-64 with incomes of up to 250% of the Federal Poverty Level.
 
 
·         Governor Christie is increasing state funding to more than $9 million so it can continue to serve New Jersey’s most vulnerable residents. An additional $1 million dollars is also being provided in cancer research funding.
 
 
Protecting Health Care Coverage for Uninsured Children:
 
 
The Christie Administration has demonstrated its commitment to providing health care coverage for uninsured children by maintaining the income eligibility level for children's coverage at 350% of the federal poverty level – the second highest coverage level in the country. Recently the Department of Human Services was recognized for performance excellence in enrolling over 700,000 children in the Family Care program. The State received a $16.8 million performance bonus payment award from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for surpassing enrollment targets and improving children’s access to health care.
 
 
During fiscal year 2013, New Jersey Family Care will use more than $1 billion of State and federal resources to provide or subsidize health insurance for 162,088 children and 192,571 adults.
 
 
COMBATING HOMELESSNESS AND HELPING LOW-INCOME FAMILIES STAY IN THEIR HOMES
 
 
Expanded Veterans Haven Program:
 
 
The Christie Administration is expanding the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs successful Veterans Haven program to provide access to veterans in the northern part of the state. The Veterans Transitional Housing Program – Veterans Haven – is a facility for homeless veterans. After being medically evaluated at a VA Medical Center, eligible veterans participate in a long-term program focusing on psychological, social and vocational rehabilitation. Hagedorn Psychiatric Hospital will provide the location for Veterans Haven North.
 
 
·         Startup funds for the project total $3.5 million. With federal funding through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, this will allow DMAVA to provide housing, health services and social and vocational rehabilitation to approximately 50 homeless veterans.
 
 
Combating Homelessness In A More Efficient, Coordinated And Strategic Manner:
 
 
Governor Chris Christie signed Executive Order 92 creating the Interagency Council on Homelessness to combat homelessness as part of the administration’s commitment to protecting the most vulnerable New Jerseyans. The Governor’s action will mobilize the state government in a more efficient, coordinated and strategic manner around the goal of combating homelessness in the state.
 
 
·         The Council is tasked with better identifying and addressing the needs of homeless New Jerseyans as part of a long term plan to help assist those individuals affected by homelessness.
 
 
Providing Housing Assistance To Those In Need:
 
 
Governor Christie’s Fiscal Year 2013 budget reaffirms his commitment to protecting the state’s most vulnerable citizens by maintaining funding for a variety of housing assistance for low-income New Jerseyans.
 
 
·        State Rental Assistance Program (SRAP). Governor Christie is providing funding for SRAP at $21 million in fiscal year 2013, which helps low-income residents afford housing by providing rental assistance grants to individuals and families.
 
 
·        Homelessness Prevention Program. This program provides financial assistance to low- and moderate-income tenants and homeowners in imminent danger of eviction or foreclosure due to temporary financial problems beyond their control. Governor Christie’s fiscal year 2013 budget protects funding at $4.4 million.
 
 
·        Shelter Assistance. In fiscal year 2013, the Christie Administration will provide $2.3 millionin assistance to homeless shelters in the state.
 
 
·        Assistance for Needy Families. In addition to these programs to assist homeless families and prevent homelessness, DHS serves many homeless residents through its General Assistance and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) programs. Both provide supports that include temporary shelter placement, rental assistance, medical coverage, food assistance and job training.  The Governor’s fiscal year 2013 budget protects $78.6 million in funding for the WorkFirst New Jersey program, part of TANF, which helps people get off welfare, secure employment and become self-sufficient through job training, education and work activities. 
 
 
Providing The Necessary Resources To Address And Prevent Homelessness:
 
 
Shelter Support Grants: In December 2011, the Christie Administration announced the award of 37 Shelter Support grants totaling $3,830,265 in both state and federal funding to nonprofit and local government agencies operating emergency homeless shelters and transitional housing facilities located throughout New Jersey.
 
 
·         It is estimated that these shelters and transitional housing facilities will assist approximately 3,000 households over the next year.
 
 
·         These grants will be used to create additional bed space, address life safety issues, abate code violations and support the 1,652 beds in existing homeless shelters and transitional housing, resulting in improved living conditions for homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence and military veterans.
 
 
Homelessness Prevention Grants: In November 2011, the Christie Administration announced the award of 10 Homelessness Prevention grants totaling $1.2 million to nonprofit agencies administering Homelessness Prevention Programs.
 
 
·         The agencies will use the state-funded grants to provide assistance to low and moderate-income tenants who are in imminent danger of eviction because of temporary or extraordinary financial circumstances.
