While the government shutdown has ended for 3 weeks, we will continue to monitor the situation and update the website accordingly.

It takes a Borough to lend a hand.

It takes a Borough to work together.

It takes a Borough to support our neighbors.

It takes a Borough to look out for one another.

We understand that some federal employees and their families may need support in a variety of ways as this shutdown continues, and our Borough residents are ready to help.

The Borough of Metuchen, through efforts led by Borough Council President Linda Koskoski and Mayor Jonathan Busch, are organizing services for Metuchen residents affected by the current government furlough. Please see the two forms below, one for government employees who may be in need of resources & one for service providers who are willing to offer discounts & services to affected families.
