New Jersey Section 8 housing.

Learn who to contact as well as where apply for the New Jersey Section 8 housing program. Low income individuals or families, senior citizens as well as the disabled can receive help for paying rent on approved homes, apartments, and housing. There are also other forms of housing assistance as well as self-sufficiency from the New Jersey Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program near you. Learn more on how to apply for emergency or long term housing choice vouchers as well as find public housing authorities near you below.

The federal government Housing and Urban Development Department works with the state of New Jersey as well as private sector landlords or property developers to run the section 8 housing voucher program. The state then works with the non-profit housing agencies below to administer the program to the working poor and low income. A focus is on families with children as well as senior citizens. Emergency section 8 is also offered in New Jersey.

Applications are needed for section 8 vouchers, and they can be done either online or in person at a PHA office. When an individual is accepted into the state of New Jersey program (note that there is often a waiting list) then they will be able to use the housing vouchers to pay a portion of their rent (or even monthly mortgage payment). The vouchers need to be used only at section 8 approved units, including apartments, homes, houses or other properties in the private market.

The homes and program is income based. It requires the tenant to continue to pay some money as well for their housing. The total amount of rent that they need to pay for their New Jersey home or apartment will be capped at around 30% of their total household income. So this will allow the home to be much more affordable by the individual who is part of the section 8 program.

Call a public housing authority in New Jersey near you, listed below, to apply for emergency section 8 or regular vouchers. Or look online at their websites. More information on how to apply, the waiting lists as well as emergency section 8 and the requirements are at the PHA.
