Deadline to Sign Letter to Preserve Affordable Housing Trust Fund is Today: Communities and Residents Across NJ Need Funding to Create Homes We Can Afford
New Jersey’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund (AHTF, formerly Balanced Housing) is a valuable resource for our state. Communities and residents across our state need this fund to create homes we can afford.
Our state is number one in foreclosures, at the top for millennials still living at home and the seventh most expensive place in the nation to rent a home. New Jersey needs these funds to solve this crisis.
After a thorough review of Gov. Murphy’s proposed state budget, the Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey reports that it was surprised to learn that the state budget continues the practice of diverting funds that are legally dedicated to creating much needed affordable homes. We need to address our housing crisis head on. As the governor has said, “every New Jerseyan should have access to a safe, affordable home.”
