Affordable Housing Program

The 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.

For information about applying for affordable housing, please see the pre-application form.

Affordable Housing News

The Borough has established a waiting list for affordable units that may become available. To be added to the waiting list for future openings, you must complete and file a preliminary application. Applications will be added to the waiting list on a date-received basis.

The Borough rarely has a vacancy, so you may wish to contact other towns' Affordable Housing offices or check the NJ Housing Resource Center for a listing of available units elsewhere.
