About Housing Authority of Bergen County

The Housing Authority of Bergen County was established in 1964 with the goal of providing housing opportunities for low income families and older adults. Its main emphasis is on its prime responsibility and mission, i.e., the efficient management and maintenance of its public housing and other subsidized housing and the administration of its subsidy programs. The Authority.s programs and activities are funded for the most part by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

In the area of family housing, the Authority has developed a significant number of affordable condominium units for families with low and moderate incomes. The availability of Community Development Block Grant Funds, provided by the federal government through the Bergen County Office of Community Development, in large measure has been instrumental in subsidizing the construction of these units. The Authority has developed units in Edgewater, Ridgewood, Leonia, Ridgefield Park, Lodi, Hackensack and Teaneck.

In addition to our affordable housing developments and elderly and disabled housing programs, we also administer a large rental assistance program, commonly referred to as the Section 8 Rental Assistance Program. This assistance is available to families, older adults and the disabled. We are presently helping over 3,500 clients making our program the largest one of its kind in the State that is administered by any single housing authority.

The Housing Authority of Bergen County is an extremely active agency that is very proud of its past accomplishments but at the same time continues to pave the way to do more in providing housing opportunities for all.
