The process starts by completing an Affordable Housing application available through Central Jersey Housing Resource Center (CJHRC). Contact CJHRC at www.cjhrc.org  or 908-446-0036 for applications and details on rentals and resale units in Bernards Township. Once an application is approved, your name is added to a waiting list based on income and family size. When a unit becomes available, either for rent or purchase, all candidates on the wait list are put into a lottery. The person that is picked will receive a letter offering them the opportunity to rent/purchase the unit.
