Officials: Lakewood Residents Should Apply for Emergency Assistance

Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles; Mike McNeil, director of S.T.E.P.S. (Solutions to End Poverty Soon); and Gary Quinn, director of the Ocean County Board of Commissions,

want to make sure that that those who need rental assistance know that they should apply for the Residential Emergency Rental Assistance Program. The application can be found at

McNeil is stressing that if you have any problems or need assistance with the application, call him at 732-367-1640.  Individuals can also come to his office at 14 South Clifton Avenue, Lakewood, by appointment only, to get help.

The Residential Emergency Rental Assistance Program is designed to help low-income residents who are struggling to pay rent or facing eviction. The Coronavirus pandemic has created financial challenges for many, such as being out of work and health issues from the virus, and officials want to help low-income residents keep the roof over their heads.
