150 Groups and Individuals Urge Gov. Murphy to Protect Most Vulnerable Residents


Nonprofit developers and community advocates today sent a letter to the Murphy Administration regarding a veto of emergency assistance legislation as well as a bill to fund Code Blue shelter services. On the letter, Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey (the Network) President and Chief Executive Officer Staci Berger issued the following statement:

“There are residents of this state who have nowhere to go and are literally left out in the cold. Some of our neighbors remain on the verge of homelessness. The governor has the power to ensure that our most vulnerable residents have a roof over their heads and a warm place to rest at night.

“150 groups and individuals are urging Gov. Murphy to have compassion for our neighbors in need and take action on Code Blue and Emergency Assistance without delay. During the cold days of this winter, it can be a matter of life or death.”
