Announcements

As COVID-19 continues to impact people locally and globally, HAGC is working to ensure that we do our part to keep the public and staff members safe and minimize the transmission of the virus. Therefore, effective Monday, March 16, 2020 HAGC is only open to the public for the limited purposes of:

(1) permitting individuals to drop off paperwork in the drop off box;

(2) permitting tenants to drop off checks in the designated rent collection boxes;

(3) by appointment only; HAGC strongly encourages residents or participants to call or email their assigned processor instead of requesting an  appointment. 

(4) HAGC has adjusted certain PHA operations to continue serving the mission of the Authority within the limitations presented by the COVID-19 pandemic by adopting certain waivers.  These waivers afford HAGC flexibility when needed to protect employees and the rights of families, facilitate initial lease ups, and keep families housed. Please see the waivers adopted as an attachment to the Section 8 Administrative Plan and Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy under downloads;

 

Public Service Notice - Gloucester County has received funds from the U.S. Department of Treasury to provide rental relief to landlords and tenants through the Emergency Rental and Utility Assistance Program (ERAP). The program provides financial assistance toward unpaid rent and/or utility bills for low- and moderate-income renter households in Gloucester County that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Selected households must meet eligibility criteria to qualify for assistance. Applications for grants from the ERAP may be submitted by a member of an eligible household or by a landlord on behalf of that eligible household. The rental assistance funds will go directly to the landlord. Applications for grants from the Emergency Rental and Utility Assistance Program (ERAP) and more information regarding the program is available online at www.gloucestercountynj.gov/1224/Emergency-Rental-Assistance.

Attention - As a Public Housing Agency providing federally assisted housing, the Authority’s polices are governed by both Federal and State laws and regulations.  Effective January 1, 2022, the New Jersey Fair Chance in Housing Act (FCHA) limits housing provider’s ability to consider a person’s criminal history in determining whether to extend an offer or whether to rent a dwelling unit after extending an offer. Please refer to the NJ Division of Civil Rights for more information about the implementation of the FCHA. https://www.njoag.gov/about/divisions-and-offices/division-on-civil-rights-home/fcha/.

As required under FCHA, the Authority instructs all applicants using the Authority’s online application to leave Page 10, “Program Integrity” Questions 2 and 3 blank, providing no answer. Any answers to these questions will be disregarded and will not be considered with the pre-application.  The Authority will conduct all program eligibility, criminal, and background screening in accordance with applicable Federal Laws, regulations, including the FCHA.

 

TAKE NOTICE, The Housing Authority of Gloucester County (HAGC) is applying for admission to the Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration Program.
