Low Income Housing In Newark, New Jersey

Newark Low Income HousingNewark's affordable and low income housing programs are designed to help three specific income groups:  Extremely Low (incomes at or below 30% of area median income), Very Low (incomes at or below 50% of area median income), and Low (incomes not exceeding 80% of area median income).

A portion of the family's rent is paid through federal funding provided under U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Section 8 Housing.  Housing is privately owned but the program is managed through the Newark Housing Authority (NHA). 

In an effort to help families eventually become independent, families on Section 8 housing vouchers can volunteer to enroll in a five-year program called the Family Self-Sufficiency program (FSS) which, in addition to family counseling, establishes a savings account for families that will over time enable them to buy their own home.

Other residents may immediately qualify for the Homeownership Program that allows them to allocate the subsidized portion of their rent towards the purchase of a home.  Under this program, families have up to 120 days to find a home and another 60 days to secure financing.

The elderly (62 or older), near elderly (50-62) and the disabled are also eligible to participate in housing assistance program.  More details and a list of qualifications are available at www.newarkha.org.
