NJ’s Point-in-Time Count May Provide the HomeFront Program More Funding To Help the Homeless

Social service organizations across the state of New Jersey took part in a point-in-time survey last Wednesday to count the homeless population and others at risk. The annual count helps determine how much federal funding is needed. Our partners at NJ Spotlight News report that last year’s point-in-time count found nearly 8,100 men, women, and children homeless across the state. The number is expected to increase with the rise in COVID-19 cases and the end of the state’s eviction moratorium earlier this month.
