HUD APPROVED RENTAL HOUSING COUNSELING
The Hudson County Housing Resource Center offers free, confidential counseling to residents in Hudson County.
We are a HUD-approved housing counseling agency with certified counselors. If you have a leaky ceiling, a landlord who will not return your security deposit, or a question about your rights as a tenant, schedule an appointment with a housing counselor. Our services are available in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Our certified housing counselors may provide assistance with:
- Calculating your housing affordability.
- Develop and review your household budget.
- Provide information on Fair Housing Rights.
- Provide other critical information about tenant protections, entitlements, and responsibilities.
- Refer to resources that may help you with emergency assistance and relocation.

WEST NEW YORK AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS
Hudson County Housing Resource Center currently administers 8 income-restricted affordable housing units in West New York, New Jersey. Unit rents are regulated by HOME Program Rents (Low/High Rents). However, we receive a greater number of applications than there are units available, so placement in a unit is often not immediate resulting in a wait list. While there may be no vacancies at the moment, we are accepting applications to our waiting list.
Please return completed applications in person, by email, fax, or mail.
Por favor devolver las aplicaciones completadas en persona, correo electrónico, fax, o correo.
TENANT BASED RENTAL ASSISTANCE
Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) provides ongoing, year round rental subsidies to eligible households in a unit of their choice. The TBRA voucher is portable, which means that a tenant may move into a different unit and continue receiving assistance, provided that the new unit remains in Hudson County and meets the program’s criteria. TBRA provides safe, secure and affordable housing to those most vulnerable to homelessness.
The waiting list for this program is closed, and we are not currently accepting new applications.
