NJCA’s Response to COVID-19

A Message from NJCA about our Issue Advocacy and Direct Services:

On behalf of New Jersey Citizen Action staff, we hope you are healthy and managing the health and economic challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to thank everyone who is staying home to prevent the virus from spreading. We also want to express our deep appreciation for the front line health care workers, grocery store workers, mail and package delivery people, emergency responders and law enforcement, makers of necessary food and products, government workers and anyone else who continues to work — for the sake of us all. We are all in your debt!

Our first priority is the health and well-being of our staff, clients, and colleagues. For these reasons, our staff will be working remotely until further notice. However, NJCA will continue to coordinate our issue advocacy and will provide services over the phone. To find a complete list of our staff contact information, click here.

For loan counseling and financial coaching clients your application process will remain the same. One-on-one sessions will be provided via telephone and video conferencing. For questions about healthcare enrollment or the Census, call (973) 643-8800, extension 210. For any other information or general questions, please leave a message in the general mailbox and it will be forwarded to the appropriate staff member. Thank you and stay well!
