Emergency Assistance (EA) Bill Signed

Monday, January 8, 2018

Governor Christie signed into law the Emergency Assistance (EA) bill for which we strongly advocated.  The bill (A4406/S2845), sponsored by Senators Weinberg and Gordon, provides for Emergency Assistance to individuals and families that are homeless or at risk for homelessness as a result of domestic violence.  As is currently the case, EA is provided to individuals who are recipients of WorkFirst NJ and Supplemental Security Income.  However, under this new law, in addition to the standards of eligibility established by the commissioner, EA must now also be granted to an individual or family in a state of homelessness or imminent homelessness due to imminent or demonstrated domestic violence. This law takes effect immediately. 

Under this law, victims are not required to provide documentation to prove the abuse, however, they are expected to provide a "signed attestation" or statement.

 We would like to thank the following people who sponsored this bill:

  • Senator Loretta Weinberg
  • Senator Robert M. Gordon
  • Assemblyman Daniel R. Benson
  • Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle
  • Assemblywoman Elizabeth Maher Muoio
  • Assemblyman Raj Mukherji
  • Assemblywoman Bettylou Decroce
  • Assemblyman Nicholas Chiaravalloti
