| No Comments
A message from Barbara Buono, Senator 18th District:

Date:  March 3rd  Time:  9:00am - 12:00pm  Place:  Middlesex County College, College Center, CafeteriaC
I am writing to invite you to an event I am sponsoring, the Family Assistance Fair, Coping with the Recession: Services, Outreach, & Solutions.  
The Assistance Fair will connect participants with government and community resources intended to help them cope with the recession.  During these difficult economic times, this event will provide direct access to these resources without the inconvenience of traveling to Trenton or making endless phone calls.

Governor Corzine, Assemblymen Diegnan, and Assemblyman Barnes have been invited to deliver opening remarks.
I believe this event will provide a unique opportunity to connect citizens with policy makers and elected officials in Trenton.  I look forward to seeing you on March 3rd.
The program's format will include a panel of speakers from several New Jersey Departments who will provide information on a wide array of social service programs such as mortgage foreclosure assistance, legal services, affordable housing, property tax rebates, health, employment, energy assistance, senior, and veterans programs. 
In addition, community groups and agencies will be setting up tables to provide specific information and on the spot access to these programs.  The Department of Human Services and the Division of Taxation will be equipped to screen participants for state programs and help them apply for property tax rebates.  As you may know, legislation was recently enacted to increase the income eligibility requirements for the Senior Freeze property tax reimbursement.  Members of the Division of Taxation will be on hand to explain this extension and the Homestead Rebate Program.

March 3rd: 9am -12pm
Middlesex County College, College Center
Cafeteria C (Park in Lot 1or 3)
Light refreshments will be served.
