The Office of Departmental Grants Management and Oversight (ODGMO) of New Jersey is responsible for housing grants (HUD programs and initiatives) in the state of New Jersey. Although there are funds available to New Jersey residents, not everyone is eligible to apply and receive New Jersey Housing Grants. The ODGMO has set a list of policy priorities.

Housing Grants for Low-Income Residents in New Jersey

New Jersey's local government has set aside financial assistance for residents with no or low-income.

The average home value in New Jersey is $357,000.00. The main initiative behind this policy is to assist residents financially while they look for jobs or improve their income.
