Community Development Highlights

Homebuyer’s Program

This program is designed to increase home ownership opportunities in Atlantic County by providing down payment and closing cost assistance to low/moderate income families when purchasing a home. Since its inception in 2003, the program has provided assistance to over 150 homebuyers.

Housing Rehabilitation

Since 1990, the Office of Community Development has provided over $12 million to assist over 1,500 resident homeowners throughout Atlantic County.  Housing rehabilitation takes place in every municipality with the exception of Atlantic City, which has its own housing program. Housing rehabilitation covers a variety of services that include, but are not limited to: emergency heat, emergency wells, roof, plumbing, electric, heating, siding, doors, windows, insulation, septic systems, septic repairs, sewer laterals, water laterals, safety related items, and structural repairs as necessary. 

Affordable Housing

Funds from the HOME Program were provided to assist in the creation of three affordable housing units. The HOME funds helped to offset the construction costs for two single-family homes built by Atlantic Human Resources in Pleasantville, and Habitat for Humanity’s Tracy House in Galloway Township. The funds helped the income eligible households to make the transition from renters to homeowners.
