Help for New Jerseyans Struggling Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic
The COVID-19 outbreak may not have been the start of your problems, but it sure made things worse. Please know that there are resources throughout the state that can help families who are struggling. Although these are external programs and organizations that our law firm has no control over, we want to point you in their direction in case you find them valuable.
For renters: “For any landlord who is getting mortgage relief today – we expect you will in turn provide similar relief to your tenants,” Governor Murphy announced on March 28, 2020. Specifically, “Tenants cannot be asked to leave their homes for nonpayment of rent during this time,” according to the Office of the Governor.
This Find a Food Pantry resource can help you locate food pantries in your area. Since some food pantries are closed or have modified their hours and operations due to the pandemic, please call before visiting, if possible.
In many school districts, children who are eligible to receive free or low-cost meals during regular operations are still eligible during school closures and can receive grab-and-go meals at designated pickup sites during designated hours, according to NPR. Qualifying families should contact their school district for more information.
