On Wednesday, the New Jersey League of Municipalities delivered letters to Senators Menendez and Booker and all Members of New Jersey’s delegation in the House of Representatives. We thanked them for the steps they have already taken to address many of the issues that confront our municipalities, our State, and our Nation. We also asked them “to bolster efforts at the local level with funding certainty and the stability of unified, non-partisan leadership.”
Specifically, we asked them to bolster block grants to local governments, including Community Development Block Grants, Social Services Block Grants, and Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants.
We also asked consideration for other proposals that would help local governments protect the economy and our residents. Read the full details, with a link to the letter to our New Jersey delegation at the Town Crier Blog.
