Find Affordable Housing

What is Affordable Housing?

Affordable Housing is housing that is available to people of low to moderate income at a reasonable price. Affordable housing, unlike market rate housing, has affordability controls limiting the price for at least 30 years. Housing is considered “affordable” if the household pays approximately 28% or less of the household’s gross income on housing costs. Affordable housing is priced to be affordable to households earning up to 80% of the area median income for the region in which the affordable housing is located.

Who Qualifies for Affordable Housing?

In order to be eligible for affordable housing in Cinnaminson, a household’s income must be below the income limits for the development in which the affordable housing is located, either for low or moderate levels. A moderate-income household is classified as earning between 50 percent and 80 percent of the area median income. A low-income household is classified as earning less than 50 percent of area median income. Families, single person households, and seniors all qualify for affordable housing. The application for each project will list the income limits.

Individuals interested in applying for affordable housing should contact the Administrative Agent for each project, the Township’s Administrative Agent or the Township’s Municipal Housing Liaison. The Township’s Administrative Agent is Triad Associates. You can contact Katherine Packowski at Triad Associates at (856) 690-9590 or by email at The Municipal Housing Liaison for the Township of Cinnaminson is Michael King.
