The Special Needs Housing Partnership Loan Program (SNHPLP) is aimed at creating affordable, supportive housing for people with developmental disabilities. This initiative aligns with the State of New Jersey’s goal to help integrate people with special needs into the community. The SNHPLP provides financing to build permanent supportive housing and community residences for individuals with developmental disabilities.
Funding for this program comes from two agencies, the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency and the Department of Community Affairs. Each municipality can contribute Affordable Housing Trust Fund (AHTF) dollars towards SNHPLP projects. The New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency and the Department of Community Affairs will match AHTF contributions on a dollar-to-dollar basis up to a maximum of $250,000 per project. The Department of Human services /Division of Developmental Disabilities (DHS/DDD) also contributes subsidies towards the installation of Fire Suppression System in each project. In 2011, the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency contributed $13 million and the Department of Community Affairs contributed $9 million to this program. These were one-time contributions. In 2013, $6,875,614 was allocated to the program. In 2014, it was $3,341,630. In 2015, the program was allocated $3,473,390.
