The Affordable Housing Committee of Old Tappan was created out of a need to provide affordable housing opportunities in accordance with fair housing practice and constitutional obligation as promulgated by the NJ Supreme Court's 1975 Mt. Laurel decision, which ruled that municipalities have an obligation to provide a realistic opportunity for the construction of low and moderate income housing.

The Committee members are appointed by and serve at the pleasure of the Mayor and Council. The Committee administrates, reviews and coordinates compliance requirements necessary to meet the Borough's goal of providing affordable housing opportunities consistent with the spirit of the Mt. Laurel Act.

Applicants may submit for the purchase and rental of affordable housing opportunities available within the Borough. Applicants are qualified by the committee for eligibility in accordance with income and family composition limits.

Eligible applicants are placed on a waiting list. The applicant waiting list is ordered and maintained on a "first come/first serve" basis.

For further information please contact a committee member or the Borough Hall.
