Faith in New Jersey Celebrates Gov. Murphy Signing Historic Affordable Housing Bill


TRENTON Faith in New Jersey’s leaders from across the state are celebrating Governor Murphy’s signing of bill, S50/A4. This bill will streamline the affordable housing process and ensure that every municipality provides its fair share of affordable housing to its residents. With the exorbitant cost of groceries, rising costs of housing and most everything else, New Jerseyans are stretched to the limit. We thank Governor Murphy for stepping up to the plate to answer the moral call by rapidly making this bill the law of the land so that New Jersey families can have the peace of mind knowing that they can have a warm, safe place to live that is comfortably within their means.


We know that when New Jersey families have access to affordable housing it leads to them seeing more employment opportunities, increased wages, and better physical and mental health outcomes. As part of our Live Free New Jersey movement, passing this bill will have a positive impact on New Jersey’s Black and Brown residents, because it helps alleviate the generational damage done by housing segregation as well as the more recent gentrification that’s been pricing these families out of their longtime communities. Signing this bill is a great step toward making an equitable New Jersey where all families are afforded the opportunity to thrive.
