How can I get help paying off overdue rent?

As of 3/22/21, New Jersey is offering rental assistance to people who have fallen behind on their rent due to COVID-19.

The program offers payment for up to 12 months of back rent. It can also provide up to 6 months of future rent for certain families.

To qualify, applicants must:

  • Be a New Jersey resident 18 years of age or older;
  • Have experienced financial hardship due to COVID-19 (such as lost jobs, lost hours, or increased family costs)
  • Demonstrate a risk of housing instability or homelessness (including facing eviction)
  • Have a household income below $77,000 for a family of 4.

The application can be found at https://njdca.onlinepha.com/. For assistance or questions, families should call (609) 490-4550 between the hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.

Families should apply as soon as possible; registration will close when a large number of people have applied.
