The budget limbo caused by sequestration is putting the squeeze on low-income New Jerseyans facing homelessness
“Instead of supporting proven programs like housing vouchers, Congress has done the opposite. From 2010-2014, New Jersey lost 1,900 federally funded Housing Choice Vouchers.

Congress should do more, not less, to make sure Lynne, and our neighbors experiencing homelessness, can thrive. Everyone deserves an opportunity to live in a great community, in a place they can afford to call home.”
