Affordable Housing Program

Image of New ProvThe Affordable Housing Program manages the Borough of New Providence’s affordable housing units in accordance with the Fair Housing Act of 1985 and its amendments and the State’s Uniform Housing Affordability Controls (UHAC).  It ensures that there are affordable housing units available for rent or sale by economically qualified lower income applicants and establishes and maintains a list of qualified applicants for the properties that may become available.

The Affordable Housing Program is also responsible for ensuring that  money collected from developer contributions or public sources is placed in the Housing Trust Fund, and that it is fairly and equitably disbursed for the rehabilitation of substandard housing occupied by lower income households.
