COVID-19 and New Jersey’s Future

Creating strong, healthy, resilient communities for everyone.

New Jersey Future has a history of helping communities emerge stronger from crises. We were there after Superstorm Sandy, taking the lead at every level of government in helping communities rebuild and become more resilient.
