This attachment posted by the state reviews different benefit scenarios for those impacted by COV-19.
On Monday, Gov. Phil Murphy issued Executive Order 103 which modifies some requirements for WorkFirst New Jersey (WFNJ) and the New Jersey Nutrition Assistance Program (NJ SNAP), in an effort to limit the spread of the virus.
Effective immediately, all applicants for WFNJ and NJ SNAP benefits are encouraged to file online at www.NJHelps.org; if the applicant or recipients requests a face-to-face meeting, County Welfare Agencies must accommodate the request. All WFNJ and NJ SNAP appointments are moving to telephone interviews, including eligibility and redetermination appointments, and child support interviews.
In addition, the redetermination period for March and April has been extended 60 days; work activity requirements for NJ SNAP and WFNJ customers have been temporarily suspended; and the sanction process for WFNJ recipients and the disqualification for NJ SNAP recipients have been temporarily suspended.

Here some flyers for a few of their new virtual classes and education grant opportunities. Questions, please contact Assistant Director of the Career and Life Transitions Center, Libby Haynes at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 908-835-2624.
