High Bridge Housing Rehabilitation Program

The High Bridge Housing Rehabilitation Program (HBHRP) is sponsored by the Borough of High Bridge as part of the Borough’s Affordable Housing Program mandated by the State of New Jersey. It offers housing rehabilitation assistance to low and moderate income Borough homeowners in the form of a deferred payment loan of up to $10,000 for basic home improvements. The interest rate on these loans is 0%. The loans are not due to be repaid until the house is sold.

Funding for the program comes from COAH development fees paid to the Borough’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund as well as from the Municipal Budget. The Borough must provide assistance to 4 homeowners under the program, over the next 6 years. Assistance will be provided on a first come, first served basis.

To apply for the High Bridge Housing Rehabilitation Program you must obtain a pre-application form from either the High Bridge Public Library, 71 Main St., the High Bridge Borough Hall, 97 West Main Street, or click here to download and print the form.
