Division of Affordable Housing

Our mission is to track and enforce municipally mandated affordable units in order to preserve existing units and effectively create new affordable units; and to study and recommend housing policy to ensure a holistic approach to meet the ongoing and future needs for all Jersey City residents. 

The Division of Affordable Housing (DOAH) was created in October of 2019 as an administrative body solely dedicated to enforcing affordable housing requirements for new private development. Private developers seeking to build in redevelopment zones or with zoning variances must work with DOAH to create affordable units for the public. 

Please note: The Division of Affordable Housing does not place tenants into units. If you are a prospective tenant looking for housing, we are happy to provide housing resources online to aid you in your search. We will not be able to accept applications or provide housing directly. 

Developer resources can be found here. Tenant housing resources can be found here.
