The City of Asbury Park will introduce a Resolution of Support of SJR No.70 at the next City Council meeting on May 11, 2022.

The City is hoping for the support of our entire State’s Congressional delegation, including Senators Booker and Menendez, as we call for the following federal-level investments in the budget reconciliation process:

  • $25 billion expansion in rental assistance to serve 300,000 additional households;
  • $65 billion to repair public housing, which is currently home to 2.5 million residents;
  • $15 billion in the national Housing Trust Fund to build and preserve 150,000 homes affordable to people with the greatest needs.
