ASA Child Advocates...WE NEED YOU!

CASA is a national organization which has local programs in each of the 21 counties in New Jersey. CASA is looking for volunteers to advocate for children in out-of-home placements in NJ.

Children may be removed from their home be cause of physical, emotional or sexual abuse. The role of the CASA volunteer is to be the “eyes and ears of the court” by helping the courts to determine the best interests of the child. CASA functions include: investigative/fact-finding, monitoring, reporting and advocating on behalf of the child. CASA volunteers become the child’s “voice in court”.

Retired educators are ideal advocates for children removed from their homes because they have an opportunity to contribute experience, expertise and knowledge to a child in foster care. Volunteers will reap the benefits of making both a contribution to the community and to a child in need. To find out more information about volunteering.

Contact CASA at www.CASAforChildrenNJ.org.

Important NJ Savings

The 2019-2020 budget fully funds the Senior and Disabled Citizens’ Property Tax Reimbursement(also known as Senior Freeze), which reimburses eligible senior citizens and disabled persons for property tax or mobile home park site fee increases on their principal residence.

Previous state budgets set the income threshold for the program at $70,000. But, recognizing the high cost of living in New Jersey and the financial hardships of those on fixed incomes, we made it a priority in the Legislature to ensure more seniors and those with disabilities can qualify. That is why we appropriated the necessary funds to increase the income limit to $89,013.

The Legislature doubled the gross income tax deduction available to U.S. military veterans through the Veterans Income Tax Deduction, from $3,000 to $6,000. This deduction is available to taxpayers honorably discharged or released under honorable circumstances from active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States, a reserve component, or the National Guard of New Jersey. About 400,000 New Jersey residents who served our country will be eligible for this enhanced benefit.
