Affordable Housing

Affordable Housing is housing that is available to people of low to moderate income at a reasonable price. Affordable housing, unlike market rate housing, has affordability controls limiting the price for at least 30 years. Housing is considered “affordable” if the household pays approximately 28% or less of the household’s gross income on housing costs. Affordable housing is priced to be affordable to households earning up to 80% of the area median income for the region in which the affordable housing is located.

NOVEMBER 2016:  Medford Township is accepting Pre-applications for the waiting list for affordable units at the Wyngate age-restricted new home development.  Click HERE for an informational flyer/instructions and pre-application form.

Who Qualifies for Affordable Housing?

In order to be eligible for affordable housing in Medford, a household’s income must be below the income limits for the development in which the affordable housing is located, either for low or moderate levels. A moderate-income household is classified as earning between 50 percent and 80 percent of the area median income. A low-income household is classified as earning less than 50 percent of area median income. Families, single person households, and seniors all qualify for affordable housing.  The application for each project will list the income limits.

Individuals interested in applying for affordable housing should contact the Administrative Agent for each project or the Township’s Municipal Housing Liaison. The Municipal Housing Liaison for the Township of Medford is Al Stanley.  His office is located at 17 North Main Street, Medford, NJ. He may be reached by phone at (609) 654-2608 ext. 337 or by email at astanley@medfordtownship.com. The Municipal Housing Liaison serves as the municipality’s primary point of contact on affordable housing issues. 

Additional locations for affordable housing are listed at the New Jersey Housing Resource Center at www.njhousing.gov, a website that was established by the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency.  The site is an on-line, searchable database of affordable housing in the State.  The Housing Resource Center provides a listing posted by developers, landlords, and municipalities of available affordable housing.  Available units are listed with contact and application information. 

The New Jersey Guide to Affordable Housing can be found at http://www.state.nj.us/dca/divisions/codes/publications/guide.html.  The guide is a listing compiled by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs Division of Codes and Standards. It lists all types of affordable housing by county. The housing units on the list have a variety of qualification requirements, including age-restricted housing and housing for the developmentally disabled.
