Hi, I went to one of the info sessions. It’ll go based on preference. If you or applicant own anything including a timeshare you will not be selected as it will more than likely put you over the assets limit. Also married couple applying with no other relatives will automatically only qualify for the 1 br appt. Deadline was 7/31. Anyone here apply?

Was in contact with HPD on 08/29 spoke with the project manager he stated the log numbers will be ready for these homes in the next 2 weeks... the only way to receive your log number is by contacting HPD

Are you limited to renting to low-income tenants in these buildings?


<THey built a bunch of these two-families in Jersey City, abutting the Worst, most Dangerous welfare project in the City and sold them for 95K but owners were stuck renting to Section 8 and worse. All were enclosed behind steel fences worthy of Rahway Prison but residents DID occasionally have to leave their fortresses.>

It just off Grand Street, I THINK just South along Johnson Ave and several cross streets...give me a second. Alas, Google maps just shows an empty open space. The projects are called Lafayette Gardens. IIRC, there were more than 100 of these built by the City with money that richer copmmunities kicked in to avoid building affordable housing mandated by the Mount Laurel Decision.
It was a case of Jersey City/Hudson County getting a windfall and spending half on junk housing and the other half going into the pockets of City and County bigwigs.


But Alpine, Short Hills, and Bedminster could stay rich and lily-white.

As per info session, they must be rented no more than a specific amount which changes annually based on the poverty level. However it is not mandatory that you rent it to any specific person, let alone rent the additional apartment at all.

Also I drove by these homes and they’re reallyyy nice on the outside. Some streets had sketchy ppl or parking problems but it’s not at all how you describe the JC homes. Good luck to everyone ����

The homeowner selects who their tenant will be. However, there are specific income requirements they must meet like the homeowner. Log numbers are already assigned so you can call to retrieve yours but they have not contacted applicants as of yet. Maybe in about 2-3 weeks, they will begin reaching out. If you have a disability prepare yourself because you will be called first, those applicants are given first preference.
