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 tenant’s 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.
