Hudson County, by resolution under authority of state statute, established “The Hudson County Homelessness Trust Fund” which authorizes the imposition of a $5.00 surcharge for documents recorded in the county, with the exception of assignments of mortgage, lis pendens, and notices of settlement.

Additionally, on May 1, 2019, bill (A4132) was introduced in the NJ Assembly, and bill (S3046) was introduced in the NJ State Senate. The passage of these bills would permit up to a $5.00 increase in surcharge for documents recorded within the county for homelessness housing trust funds.
