The Woodbridge Housing Authority
In 1937 Congress passed the U.S. Housing Act to alleviate unemployment and to remedy unsafe and unsanitary housing conditions and the acute shortage of decent, safe and sanitary dwelling for families of low income. The legislation was designed to encourage construction, create employment opportunities, and provide shelter for low-income families and clear sub-standard housing. Emphasizing local control of its programs, the Housing Act provided for housing in which rents would relate to the tenants ability to pay.
The Housing Authority of the Township of Woodbridge, New Jersey, was created October 14, 1949. The Township Ordinance creating the Authority was adopted August 16, 1949.
The Authority is composed of 565 Project Based Vouchers across 6 sites located throughout Woodbridge Township and 405 units of Section 8 housing.
The purpose of the Woodbridge Housing Authority is to create and maintain safe, decent and sanitary housing for those individuals of low to moderate income.

Please be advised that until further notice the Housing Authority will be closed to the public. We will, however, continue to clean the buildings daily and perform emergency work orders.
If rent changes are needed, please call and leave a message with the appropriate case worker who will be checking their voicemail regularly. All recertification appointments will be rescheduled.
Emergencies may be reported by calling the main number and dialing 0 to reach the answering service. They will ask you to describe your emergency and will contact the on call personnel only if they deem it necessary.
