This webpage is designed specifically for housing administrators responsible for affordable units included in Fair Share Plans adopted by municipalities. Here you will find many useful resources and tools for understanding the affordable housing process, your role in that process, and ways to effectively and correctly administer affordable housing consistent with all applicable regulations. Whether you administer rental or for-sale housing, there is information on this webpage that will be of assistance to you. As new information, forms, and model documents are available, this webpage will be updated. So be sure to check back often!

Affordable housing units credited in Fair Share Plans are subject to the Uniform Housing Affordability Controls (U.H.A.C.). Affordable units must also follow certain guidelines set forth by the source(s) of funding for the units. Units funded under certain programs are exempt from some of the requirements of U.H.A.C.

A manual on "Understanding UHAC" is available through the link below in a .pdf format. To request a printed copy of the manual or if you have any questions, please call (609) 292-3000. Below are also several resources that relate to the information in the handbook.
