March 25th, 2022

Highland Park — Today Renee Koubiadis, Anti-Poverty Program Director for New Jersey Citizen Action (NJCA), released the following statement on the signing of S2356/A3671 into law.

“We thank Governor Murphy for working so quickly to sign S2356/A3671 into law. The new law will provide important shut-off protection for residents with pandemic utility bill arrearages who have already applied for a utility assistance program and are waiting for a decision on their application.

We urge all stakeholders, public and private, to dedicate their resources to promote the benefits of this new law and help raise awareness about all the utility assistance programs New Jersey has to offer.  

NJCA stands ready to assist in all outreach efforts, with both our public and private partners, to ensure all New Jerseyans are aware of the utility assistance programs available to them.”
