Keeping a Roof Over Your Head

Losing your job has changed your ability to manage your housing costs. If you are now among the many thousands of New Jersey residents who have lost their unemployment benefits, the challenge to make ends meet has become increasingly difficult. Whether you are trying to handle a monthly mortgage payment or monthly rent, these are particularly difficult times for you and your family.

You can also find COVID-19 Housing Assistance on our site. For people who may not be able to make rental or mortgage payments due to COVID-19, we have compiled a page of resources that are statewide, county-, or city-specific. This page also gives information about tenant rights and homeowners counseling. Click here to learn more. 

Entitlement Programs

Some entitlement programs provide assistance for temporary rental assistance, back rent or mortgage payments. Learn more about entitlement programs.

It is best to try to avoid foreclosure through the use of our foreclosure prevention resources such as foreclosure prevention counseling and mortgage refinancing options. If the process of foreclosure has already begun, it is important to understand the resources available to you.
