(This amendment provides an additional $9.0 million GF in FY 2024 to support the Eviction Reduction Pilot (VERP), administered by DHCD through a competitive grant process for local eviction prevention efforts. VERP funds may be used to cover any expenses that will prevent the recipient family from being evicted. Over 1700 households have been recipients of VERP funds; those households included a total of more than 1800 children. This budget amendment will fund an expansion of the eviction prevention program.)
