Housing Authority of the Township of North Bergen provides rental
assistance under the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program to
an additional 420 low-income families residing in privately-owned
rental units located throughout the Township of North Bergen.
The purpose of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is to
provide safe, decent, and sanitary housing for low-income households
in the private rental market. Eligible households pay a portion
of their monthly income towards their rent and utility costs. The
balance of the rest is paid by the program directly to the owner
of the rental property.
Section 8 is funded by the United States
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Housing
Authority of the Township of North Bergen administers the program
within the Township of North Bergen.
Successful participation in the program requires that a participating
family fulfill its obligations to its
landlord and the North Bergen Housing Authority.
