Housing Division

About

In 1977 the Board of County Commissioners established the Hunterdon County Department of Public Housing.  Now known as the Division of Housing, the office operates under the oversight of the Hunterdon County Department of Human Services.  The Division of Housing is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Under the supervision of the County, the Division of Housing has the full responsibility to administer the Housing Choice Voucher Program and answer directly to the regional office of HUD.  The Division maintains a close working relationship with the Division of Social Services and the Division of Senior Services

The Hunterdon County Department of Human Services Division of Housing is funded to provide monthly rental subsidies to approximately 482 tenant families, provided that their chosen rental unit meets all HUD guidelines.
