Special Needs Housing Partnership Loan Program (SNHPLP)

Under the Special Needs Housing Partnership Loan Program (SNHPLP), the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA), the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) and the New Jersey Department of Human Services (DHS), Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) will provide financing to create permanent supportive housing and community residences for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Loan proceeds may be used for the acquisition and rehabilitation of existing three- to four-bedroom single family houses and first floor three- to four-bedroom condominiums, with acquisition and all rehabilitation to be completed within six (6) months of mortgage closing.

Other housing arrangements of up to six (6) bedrooms may qualify, on a case-by-case basis, as may be accepted by NJHMFA staff, in consultation with the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), provided the Sponsor is able to meet the 6-month threshold requirement. New construction, while not encouraged, will be considered on a case-by-case basis provided the Sponsor is also able to meet the 6-month threshold requirement.
