Eligibility for the New Jersey Fair Share Housing (Mt. Laurel) Program is determined by gross annual household income.
To qualify for NJ Fair Share Housing, your income must be no more than 80% of median for moderate income or 50% of median for low income and 30% for very low income. For most NJ Fair Share Housing projects, an income of at least 35% of median is required to meet housing costs.
Income includes, but is not limited to: wages, salaries (including overtime), tips, commissions, alimony, child support, social security, disability, pensions, unemployment compensation, TANF, business income and actual or imputed interest earned from assets (which include bank accounts, CD's, stocks, bonds and other securities), rent and real estate income and any other form reported to IRS.
