Financial support for homeowners

On Tuesday, February 8th, the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA) will open the application portal for the Emergency Rescue Mortgage Assistance program (ERMA) to help protect thousands of homeowners from foreclosure.

This program will provide up to $35,000 in assistance to cover mortgage arrearages, delinquent property taxes, and other housing costs for eligible homeowners negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

NJHMFA will also provide free housing counseling services to help New Jersey homeowners apply for this program, guide them through all available options, and even work with their loan servicers to achieve the best outcome available for their families. These counselors will also ensure that the process is accessible to those without access to internet or anyone needing assistance with the application.

The ERMA application portal will open for applications on February 8th, 2022 at 9 am.

Visit NJHMFA's ERMA page to review program eligibility and sign up for program updates.

Stay Out of the Hospital - Get a COVID-19 Booster!

Booster vaccine

A recent survey of NJ hospitals showed that 93% of adults hospitalized with COVID-19 had not received a booster. Over a 24-hour period, 96% of adults who visited the Emergency Room (ER) for COVID-19 had not received a booster.

A booster is recommended for everyone 12 years and older. The recommended timing for a booster dose is as follows:

  • Pfizer (Age 12+) or Moderna (Age 18+) — at least 5 months after receiving the initial vaccine series
  • J&J (Age 18+) — at least 2 months after receiving your J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine

Increase your chances of staying out of the hospital by getting a COVID-19 booster!
