Hudson County Commissioners Award Over $2 Million For Homeless Program Services

The Hudson County Board of Commissioners have awarded $2,070,100 from the Hudson County Homelessness Trust Fund to numerous organizations countywide.  Recipients of funds include:

  • North Hudson Community Action Corporation, $465,811
  • CCAN, $403,900

In 2016, over a thousand people were counted as homeless in Hudson County.  That’s when the County developed a 10-year plan to end homelessness.  The purpose of the program is to provide services that include medical care, essential support services and social services programs.

The County of Hudson established the Hudson County Homelessness Trust Fund to be utilized to address the needs of homeless persons.  A surcharge of $3.00 will be assessed for each document filed or recorded in the County Register’s and County Clerk’s Office, which will be used exclusively for the Trust Fund.

A Hudson County Homelessness Trust Fund Advisory Board has been appointed by County Executive Tom DeGise and approved by the Board of Commissioners.

The term of the grant is January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022.
