The New Jersey Affordable Housing Trust Fund (previously known as the New Jersey Balanced Housing Program) provided municipalities, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit developers with financial assistance to develop affordable housing. The funding served primarily as gap financing when other public subsidies and private financing was insufficient. Eligible activities included rehabilitation, creation of accessory apartments, conversion of nonresidential space to housing, acquisition of property, and grants to municipalities to study housing need. Local housing authorities were also eligible for assistance with rehabilitation for existing housing. A maximum of $6 million per project is available. This program was inactive for some time and is now being used to fund SRAP and various other housing programs.
This program was funded through the New Jersey Transfer Tax.
