Quijano & Chaparro Bill to Create Pilot Program to Assist Certain Low Income Renters with Security Deposits Approved by Assembly Panel
Legislation sponsored by Assemblywomen Annette Quijano (D-Union) and Annette Chaparro (D-Hudson) to create a pilot program in select counties to help low-income renters with their security deposits was released Monday by an Assembly panel.
The pilot program would run in Union, Essex, Hudson & Gloucester counties
By law the amount of a security deposit on a residential lease may not exceed 150 percent of the amount of the monthly rent, but this initial payment is still cost-prohibitive for many residents.
