NJAHRA works together with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Community Affairs of the State of New Jersey (DCA) in a concerted effort to improve the quality and delivery of assisted housing services and related support services for New Jersey’s low-income residents.

The primary service functions of NJAHRA are:

1. To inform and educate our membership on all issues and topics affecting the operation and administration of New Jersey’s public housing and its Section 8 rental assistance and community development programs. Membership meetings, workshops, seminars, and conference sessions are scheduled in a timely manner and at convenient locations for the purpose of accomplishing this task.

2. To inform the low-income residents of our State of the availability of housing assistance programs designed to meet their needs for decent, safe and affordable housing. This task is accomplished via the dissemination of informational materials pertaining to topics, such as  the following:
