From the Hudson Reporter:

More than 1,600 low-income households in Jersey City will receive rent relief and utility assistance through the Jersey City COVID-19 Hardship Assistance Program, according to Mayor Steven Fulop and the Jersey City Economic Development Corporation.

According to the city, 95-percent of applicants for the $2.5 million in grant money will be provided to residents in The Heights and southwest sections of the city through local nonprofit partners.


The city has started planning for a second round of rental assistance, homeless prevention, and eviction work.

According to the city, United Way will receive $2 million for homeless prevention funded by an Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG). The Jersey City Housing Authority will assist the Division of Community Development to help administer $7.8 million in U.S. Department of Treasury funds.
