On Friday September 28, 2007, New Jersey Association of Counties (NJAC) Board of Directors passed a resolution endorsing the County-based Homeless Trust Funds. The resolution resolved that the “New Jersey Association of Counties urges the New Jersey State Legislature to adopt legislation enabling our 21 County Governments to establish, fund and administer Homeless Trust Funds.” Pictured on the right is Louis N. Magazzu, Cumberland County Freeholder and President of the New Jersey Association of Counties. NJAC joins among other supporters five counties – Hudson, Mercer, Passaic, Salem and Middlesex – that have endorsed the County-based Homeless Trust Funds as a key component of an effort to end homelessness.
