AFFORDABLE HOUSING

The Fulop administration has placed a major emphasis on affordable housing, creating the first 80/20 housing developments on the waterfront in more than three decades and developing the first affordable housing plan in the city’s history.  In four years, the Fulop administration has created or preserved more housing than during the previous eight years, including new senior housing at the Catherine Todd Housing on Montgomery Street.   In collaboration with the Hudson County Building Trades, the Fulop administration built the first ever housing for homeless veterans, answering First Lady Michelle Obama’s call to end veteran homelessness.  After initially constructing 34 units, there are 20 additional units in the pipeline. 

The Fulop administration has also created an affordable housing navigator so residents can understand what affordable housing exists, how to apply and find other important information.  For more on the City's affordable housing availability click here.

80/20 Housing
The first 80/20 affordable housing project in three decades is nearing completion on the Jersey City waterfront.  The Hudson Exchange West downtown development (pictured above) is part of the Fulop Administration's ongoing efforts to provide ample affordable housing throughout the City; with 20 percent of the waterfront area project's total units designated as affordable and 80 percent at market rate.

Catherine Todd Senior Housing










Jersey City officials cut the ribbon on the Catherine Todd Senior Living Center in June, where 68 modernized apartments are located on Montgomery Street.  This is the first phase of the larger revitalization effort at the former public housing site, Montgomery Gardens.
