BLOOMFIELD, NJ – The State of New Jersey Rental Assistance Program (SRAP) will accept applications to be added to the waiting list starting Monday, July 11 at 9:00 AM until Friday, July 22 at 5:00 PM. Applications must be submitted online at: WaitlistCheck.com/NJ559
“With inflation and the cost of living at an all-time high, families need all the relief they can get,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “My administration stands ready to assist anyone who needs help completing or submitting their applications, and I strongly encourage residents to take full advantage of this great program for assistance with paying their rent.”
SRAP is a state funded program that provides housing subsidies on behalf of very low-income New Jersey residents, for decent, safe and sanitary housing. Persons applying must meet all applicable SRAP income and eligibility requirements, which can be found on the program’s website: https://www.nj.gov/dca/divisions/dhcr/offices/srap.html.
A total of 4,000 households will be selected through a lottery system to be added to the waiting lists. You must be eighteen years of age or older to apply, or be an emancipated minor. Only one SRAP pre-application per household will be accepted. Please note that only New Jersey residents are eligible to apply for SRAP assistance.
For any questions or assistance with the online application, please do not hesitate to contact the Bloomfield Human Services Department at (973) 680-4017.
