 COVID-19 CASE UPDATE FOR STONEBRIDGE AT MONTGOMERY

The State of New Jersey is now posting a daily report of COVID-19 case counts and deaths in long-term care facilities, including Stonebridge of Montgomery.  Yesterday, the state reported 21 positive tests but zero deaths at Stonebridge.  Based on data reported to the Montgomery Township Health Department, those 21 cases involve 17 staff members and 4 residents. Stonebridge residents are counted in the daily count totals reported by Montgomery Health, along with staff who happen to live in town as well.  Non-resident staff infections are reported in their respective hometowns.

Statewide, long term care facilities are producing 40% of all COVID deaths. These older populations living in community are particularly vulnerable to the disease, which is why visitors are not allowed in any such facilities in the state. Unfortunately many of those testing positive are staff members who often work multiple part-time jobs to make a living, increasing their potential for exposure. Montgomery Health Department’s disease investigators are working closely with Stonebridge’s leadership to assure strict adherence to infection control measures.

Stonebridge Administration’s Statement on COVID-19 Protective Measures 

Stonebridge staff cases are a reminder that members of our community may be infected but not be symptomatic initially or at all. That is why we are engaging in strong physical distancing policies. Everyone should continue to stay home except for work or the most essential reasons. Wear a fabric mask when you must go out and stay six feet distance from others, in order to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

DCA Launches Online Residential Foreclosure Intention Filing System

The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) this month launched an online foreclosure intention filing system for residential mortgage lenders to electronically submit to DCA copies of Notices of Intention to Foreclose on residential properties, as well as descriptive information for each property served with such a notice. The filing system is designed to populate a database that details the extent to which residential properties in the State are at immediate risk of foreclosure.

“Centralizing data on potential mortgage foreclosures throughout the state helps us refine the focus of our existing foreclosure prevention programs and informs the development of new ones so we can better succeed in keeping families in their homes,” said Lt. Governor Sheila Y. Oliver, who serves as DCA Commissioner. “We need this valuable information now more than ever as New Jersey faces an unprecedented economic crisis as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Knowing which homes in the state are at risk of foreclosure will help us reach those families quicker with assistance.”

A Notice of Intention to Foreclose is the first indicator that a homeowner is struggling to keep up with mortgage payments. State law requires that all residential mortgage lenders give homeowners at least 30 days prior notice by registered or certified mail before starting any foreclosure or other legal action to take possession of property. Attempts to reverse the foreclosure process generally have the best chance for success in this window of time, i.e. after the mortgage lender has sent the Notice of Intention to Foreclose and before the lender has filed the foreclosure complaint. At this stage of the process, the amount of fees and missed payments are usually still manageable and foreclosure intervention programs have the greatest likelihood of keeping families in their homes.

The foreclosure intention filing system will enable DCA to coordinate with the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA), which is one of its affiliated agencies, to more effectively connect homeowners with the housing counseling offered under NJHMFA’s Foreclosure Mediation Assistance Program. For foreclosure prevention resources, including information about the Foreclosure Mediation Assistance Program, you can visit https://www.nj.gov/dca/hmfa/foreclosure/facts/.

The filing system was created pursuant to Public Law 2019, Chapter 134. Under this law, all Notices of Intention to Foreclose must be filed electronically with DCA beginning April 1, 2020, as opposed to filing in hard copy. Through the new system, mortgage lenders, mortgage loan servicers, and their designees are able to submit Notices of Intention to Foreclose along with information for each property, including street address, county, zip code, municipality, block and lot numbers, and current owner(s) of record.

The database is confidential and not subject to public access or the common law concerning access to public records. It can be used on a read-only basis by DCA, county clerks, county registers of deeds and mortgages, county sheriffs, the Administrative Office of the Courts, other State agencies designated by DCA, and municipalities for those records within their jurisdiction. Authorized users of the database are required by law to maintain confidentiality of the records.

Additional information about the foreclosure intention filing system can be found athttps://www.nj.gov/dca/foreclosure.html on the DCA website.

DCA offers a wide range of programs and services, including affordable housing production, fire safety, building safety, community planning and development, local government management and finance, and disaster recovery.

NJ Expands Payment Relief for Student Loans

Includes Late Fees, Credit Reporting, Debt Collection, Payment Postponements

Many private student loan servicers will now provide relief to borrowers in New Jersey because of the COVID-19 pandemic. An estimated 200,000 residents of that state who have privately held student loans could qualify for relief.

Under the new initiative, New Jersey residents with commercially-owned Federal Family Education Program Loans or privately held student loans who are struggling to make their payments due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be eligible for expanded relief. The New Jersey initiative is modeled on the agreement made by the New York Department of Financial Services with commercial student loan servicers in the state.

Borrowers in New Jersey who need assistance must immediately contact their student loan servicers to identify options that are appropriate for their circumstances. Relief options offered by participating servicers include:

  • Providing a minimum of 90 days of forbearance relief for borrowers;
  • Waiving late payment fees for borrowers;
  • Ensuring no borrower is subject to negative credit reporting;
  • Ceasing debt collection lawsuits for 90 days; and
  • Working with eligible borrowers to enroll them in other applicable borrower assistance programs.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Department of Banking and Insurance Commissioner Marlene Caride announced Tuesday that the state had secured the relief options with the private student loan servicers.

The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provided relief for students with federal loans, including the suspension of monthly payments, interest, and involuntary collection activity until September 30. But the CARES Act does not apply to student loan borrowers with federal loans that are not owned by the U.S. Government.

“Far too many New Jerseyans struggle with crushing student loan debt in good times, and our current crisis has only exacerbated the problem,” Murphy said in a statement Tuesday. “This initiative will provide much needed relief to New Jerseyans who are struggling with student loans and other financial obligations during this crisis.”

The initiative builds on the effort to help student loan borrowers who are served by the New Jersey’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority. Last month, officials announced that borrowers with loans from the New Jersey College Loans to Assist State Students program could apply for payment relief programs.

The following private student loan servicers are providing relief to borrowers:

Aspire Resources, Inc.
College Ave Student Loan Servicing, LLC
Earnest Operations, LLC
Edfinancial Services, LLC
Kentucky Higher Education Student Loan Corporation
Lendkey Technologies, Inc.
Higher Education Loan Authority of the State of Missouri (MOHELA)
Navient Corp.
Nelnet, Inc.
SoFi Lending Corp.
Tuition Options, LLC
Utah Higher Education Assistance Authority (UHEAA)
Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC)

 More information and a list of participating servicers can be found at dobi.nj.gov.

To determine the types of federal loans they have and who their servicers are, borrowers can visit the U.S. Department of Education’s National Student Loan Data System at nslds.ed.gov or call the Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-433-3243 or 1-800-730-8913 (TDD). Borrowers with private student loans can also check the contact information on their monthly billing statements.

Residents who have questions or are experience problems with a student loan servicer can contact the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance Consumer Hotline at 1-800-446-7467 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, or go to the department’s website and click on Consumer Assistance – Inquiries/Complaints, at https://www.dobi.nj.gov

SEWER DEPT. REMINDER: PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH WIPES

During the COVID-19 emergency, it has been in the news in many places that sewerage treatment systems are being clogged by ‘flushable’ wipes, which actually do not easily degrade.  Montgomery Twp. is no exception. Please remember to go easy (pun intended) on our Sewerage Treatment system here in town and only flush the things you must, including toilet paper.  PLEASE put the rest in the trash, including paper towels and ‘flushable’, anti-bacterial, ‘wet’, baby and disinfectant wipes. We are fortunate to have very dedicated DPW Sewer Division staff and they are very busy keeping everything flowing in the right direction.  Equipment can break when avoidable tangles and clogs cause back-ups … and that costs everyone.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

MONTGOMERY VOLUNTEERS STEP UP TO THANK HEALTH CARE WORKERS

In the middle of this health crisis, there are so many in our local community who have stepped up to help.  Today we would like to share a few stories of generosity and giving back.  These below stories may include YOU if you have been able to support these efforts; in fact you still can!

We’ve all heard about the first responders and health care workers battling on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic.  EMTs, doctors, nurses, aides, and other care givers are risking their lives each day to serve the sick and save lives.  Many members of the Montgomery community have stepped up to say ‘thank you’. And what better way to say thanks than to treat someone to lunch?

GRAB & GO LUNCHES FOR THE FRONTLINE
Healthcare workers at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick gratefully accept a “Grab & Go” Lunch delivery from the Rotary Club of Montgomery & Rocky Hill and the MBA.

The Rotary Club of Montgomery and Rocky Hill and the Montgomery Business Association got together to see through an idea they dubbed, “COVID-19 Support – Grab & Go Lunches for Frontline Workers.” These are two groups who always step up for our community, so they started collecting donations and organizing the lunches right away.

“We are feeding our front line hospital workers while supporting our local businesses. We are expressing everyone’s gratitude, plus it also helps the smaller mom & pop restaurants and delis in Montgomery keep going, at the same time,” said Cory Wingerter, Rotarian and last year’s MBA President.

“It’s going great! We have raised $10,000 and have been delivering 50 grab and go lunches each day for over three weeks now, plus snacks for first responders,” reported Rotarian Lisa Youngberg, one of the main organizers.

The Rotary/MBA have delivered to RWJ Somerset Respiratory Department, RWJ New Brunswick Respiratory Department, and Penn Medicine Princeton. The restaurants which the Rotary and MBA have been working with so far include Beniaminos, 206 Corner Deli, By The Cup of Rocky Hill, Midpoint Mediterranean Grill, Alfonso’s, New World Pizza, Genteels, Chris’ Cafe, Sweet Gourmet, Robinson’s Chocolate, and Playa Bowls.

A donation of $10 buys a lunch. The volunteers hope people can spread the word and share about “Grab and Go Lunches for the Frontline”. “We absolutely need more financial donations to keep the program running. We were able to add a Credit Card link with the MBA’s assistance,” Lisa added.

Special snacks are also being provided by Rotary/MBA as a Thank You to Montgomery & Rocky Hill first responders.

 


MEALS FOR HEROES
Montgomery’s Jai Narula  packs up “Meals for Heroes” made by Genteel’s Brick Oven Pizza for delivery to COVID19 units at St. Peter’s University Hospital.

A young community member who has stepped up in an incredible way is high school student Jai Narula, who joined other area teens in an effort they call “Meals for Heroes”.  Jai and his mom, Marisa, have been partnering with Genteel’s Pizzeria in Skillman for several weeks to provide hot meals to the staff of the seven COVID-19 units at Saint Peter’s University Hospital through community donations. Jai is 14 years old and is a boy scout with Montgomery Troop #850.  Jai is also a member of MHS Team 1403 Robotics, and a Code Sensei at Code Ninjas, a coding school owned by the Narula family, who live in Belle Mead. Marisa is a long-time scouting leader and an active community volunteer.

“I am happy to help and think this is a great cause. The doctors and nurses are sacrificing so much for all of us. Service to others is a big part of our lives and who we are as scouts. This is the least we can do,” said Jai.

James Genteel, along with his wife Dawn, have owned and operated Genteel’s Brick Oven Pizza & Ristorante in Skillman for over 16 years. Genteel’s regularly sponsors many Montgomery charities, sports, and youth groups. They have two children who were born at Saint Peter’s University Hospital. “I’m glad to be able to jump in to feed the front line,” said James.

To date, over $5,500 has been raised for Meals for Heroes. For every $10 raised, Meals for Heroes provides one hot meal and drink to the staff.

Hillsborough High School students Navleen and Raj Boparai founded Meals for Heroes in early March and have been regularly providing meals to RWJ University Hospitals of Somerset and New Brunswick. Meals for Heroes now has branches in Hillsborough, Montgomery, Edison, Basking Ridge, Monroe, and Queens. All Meals for Heroes initiatives are organized by the teens with the assistance of their parents.

If you’d like to learn more about Meals for Heroes or donate, please visit: www.facebook.com/mealsforheroes or donate thru Venmo to: @MJNarula or a check to Genteel’s with “Meals for Heroes” in the memo line mailed or dropped to: Genteel’s Brick Over Pizza and Restaurante, 1378 US Highway 206, Skillman, NJ 08558

FOOD PANTRY ACCEPTING MONETARY DONATIONS

A great way to help the community is to continue to support the Montgomery Food Pantry.

Although the Food Pantry is physically closed and cannot accept food or non-food grocery items at this time, they are still working to support the families who rely upon their services. According to Manager Denise Crowley, the Montgomery Food Pantry is collecting donations on-line to purchase Shop Rite gift cards for their confidential client families.

“We have done several weekly mailings of ShopRite gift cards to existing Food Pantry clients and a number of families affected by COVID 19. We will continue to do this as long as our building remains closed to the public,” said Ms. Crowley.

To donate, please visit: https://register.communitypass.net/Montgomery. Once logged on, choose “Montgomery Recreation Trust Programs” and then select “Food Pantry Donations”.  If you have any questions, please email recreation@twp.montgomery.nj.us

or call 609-466-3023. Someone will get back to you within 24 hours. The Food Pantry thanks you in advance for your generosity! An announcement will be made when the food pantry will physically re-open and will again accept donations of non-perishable food or non-food grocery items.

If you or someone you know is in need of assistance from the Food Pantry, please contact Denise Crowley at Montyfoodpantry@gmail.com.
