The Costs of Cutting Health Care: An Analysis of Recent Changes to New Jersey FamilyCare

Thampi, Kalyani

This policy report uses results from the Family Resource Simulator and the Basic Needs Budget Calculator to analyze New Jersey’s work support policies through the lens of cuts to New Jersey FamilyCare (NJFC). It examines the significant and measurable ways in which these cuts affect low-income children and families, the state budget, and the local economy. The report closes with policy recommendations that could provide a better investment in New Jersey’s working families and its economy.
