Monarch mobilizes our partners in NJ around these issues which include, but are not limited to:
Funding for homeless programs;
Funding for supportive housing;
COAH and state housing programs;
Funding for the National Housing Trust Fund.
Although these are on-going initiatives, Monarch has been instrumental in securing increases in funding, new funding e.g. CDBG-DR, and developed a relationship with state and federal legislators and their staffs. Monarch does this by taking a leadership role with the following key partners:
Allocating CDBG-DR funding for supportive housing.
Monarch’s website provides an ongoing update of public policy issues and accomplishments. Building on our success and leadership role to date, Monarch has opportunities to both continue and expand its public policy efforts. For example, Monarch recently co-hosted, with the Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey, a webinar for New Jersey partners interested in learning more about the next steps in Federal Advocacy.
