Housing Authority of Bergen County (HABC)

The Housing Authority of Bergen County was established in 1964 with the goal of providing housing opportunities for low income families and older adults. Our main emphasis is the efficient management and maintenance of our affordable housing units and rental assistance programs. Almost all of the Authority’s programs and activities are funded by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

In addition to our senior, disabled and family affordable housing developments, we also administer the largest Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance program in the County, and one of the five largest in the State. This tenant based form of subsidy is targeted to assist the County’s most vulnerable populations: low income families, seniors, the disabled and those that are homeless or at-risk of homelessness. We presently assist over 3300 households in making the housing of their choice affordable to them.
