$10 million Lead-Safe Home Remediation Pilot Grant Program
The Network also successfully prevented policies that would threaten its efforts to Build a Thriving New Jersey. Despite over 130 towns settling their fair share housing obligation with the Courts and advocates, there were efforts to put a moratorium on all litigation that would create more affordable homes. With your help, your advocacy efforts stopped any of these bills from even being heard by the legislature.
This bill requires lenders participating in a short sale to respond to a good faith offer within 60 days. This bill is currently awaiting action from the governor. Please contact Governor Christie today and urge him to sign the bill into law.
When the legislature comes back into session after the November 7, 2017 election, the Network is ready for final action on some of its other priorities. Five other policy priority bills have already been passed by one chamber of the legislature and await action from the other.
Finally, and most importantly, we need support for Build a Thriving NJ to get the next governor and legislature to invest $600 million in affordable homes. You can help the Network get candidates running to represent you in the legislature to endorse Build a Thriving New Jersey, a critical campaign.
