Union County is Prepared for Federal Shutdown


Union County, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders advises residents that County services will not be affected by the federal government shutdown over the short term.

“We have put considerable effort into ensuring that Union County continues to deliver the county-based services that the public depends on,” said Freeholder Chairman Linda Carter.

Union County officials have been advised that federal Homeland Security officials will continue to provide information and resources relevant to public safety and security, and that federal human services programs administered by Union County will continue to be provided. These include veterans’ services, welfare (including nutrition assistance), Section 8, and housing for people with AIDS.

“If you have any questions about County services, please visit our website at ucnj.org, or call our toll free public info line, 877-424-1234,” said Carter.
