Hunterdon Joins Other Counties
Petitioning For
Fair Share of CARES Act Funding

Governor Has $250 Million Fund Not Being Distributed
Hunterdon County’s Freeholder Board has joined eleven other counties that were shut out of federal CARES Act funding in petitioning Governor Phil Murphy to reimburse county governments for extraordinary expenses incurred in combating the COVID-19 health crisis from a $250 million state fund specifically designated for local governments, under the federal act.

Freeholder John E. Lanza stated, “The Governor has yet to release any of the $250 million local government funding, while county governments continue to spend millions in limited property taxpayer dollars battling the COVID-19. Our taxpayers are entitled to their fair share of the funding.”
