The Hamilton Township Housing Authority, also known as HUD, provides housing support and programs to uplift the community.
- Community Development Block Grant
- Limited English Proficiency Plan
- Housing Choice Voucher Program
- Housing Rehabilitation Program
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program supports community development activities to build stronger and more resilient communities.
Hamilton Township Office of Housing has adopted this plan to provide access to its programs and activities by person with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). A Limited English Proficient (LEP) person is a person who does not speak English as their primary language and who has a limited ability to read, write, speak, or understand English. In accordance with federal guidelines,
Hamilton Township Office of Housing will make reasonable efforts to provide to arrange free language assistance for its LEP clients, including applicants, recipients and/or persons eligible for public housing and other Hamilton Township Office of Housing programs.
The Housing Choice Voucher Program is a rent subsidy program. Participants may pay no more than 30 percent of their adjusted monthly income towards their monthly rent and utilities.
Online applications from very low-income individuals and families based on the income limits established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development were accepted between August 9-13, 2021. Applicants were placed into a lottery system which randomly selected 250 applicants to be placed on the waiting list.
At this time, no new applications are being accepted.
Hamilton Township has developed a program for Housing Rehabilitation to uplift the quality of its housing stock and to improve the condition and appearance of its neighborhoods.
The primary purposes of the program – to strengthen and preserve the Township’s housing resources – will be accomplished through the use of deferred loans which will make it possible for homeowners to repair and rehabilitate properties on a Township-wide basis in a way that will not abuse undue economic hardship to them. The funding for this program is supplied by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development through the Community Development Block Program in which Hamilton Township is currently participating. Both eligibility and the amount of aid that qualified residents can receive are determined through a sliding scale.
