The state will get roughly $20 million from the Murphy administration in new affordable housing units.
On Thursday, Governor Phil Murphy made the announcement in Elizabeth. 20 apartments in the city will each receive more than $4 million.
The strategy will assist in the development of 79 affordable housing units around the state by community-based organisations.
According to the administration, this is about ensuring equity.
People’s lives are transformed by housing. You may rest certain that we are working to advance the Murphy-Oliver agenda, which aims to make New Jersey a more equitable place to live.
The governor also approved a law that will simplify the procedure for issuing building permits. Last month, the state Legislature unanimously approved that bill, which was bipartisan.
