The NJ DCA is launching its pre-application process for the State Rental Assistance Program (SRAP) assistance. Those accepted must be from very low-income households. In addition, applicants must be eighteen (18) years of age or older to apply or be an emancipated minor. Pre-applications successfully submitted during the open enrollment period have the same chance of being selected during the lottery. Those selected in the lottery for the wait list will be eligible to receive SRAP vouchers as they become available.
All pre-applications submitted online during the open enrollment period from Monday, July 11, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. until Friday, July 22, 2022, at 5:00 p.m., will be entered into a database, and a lottery system will be used to select applicants for the waiting lists.
Elderly applicants must serve as head of household and be 62 or older. For those applying in the Family category, the head of household must be 18 years of age or an emancipated minor, with or without children. To qualify in the Disabled category, the head of household or spouse must be permanently disabled. Homeless applicants must lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
