Housing Resource Fair to Be Held in Middletown Township on March 13 to Help People Affected by Superstorm Sandy Access Available Housing Resources
Trenton, NJ – The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) today announced a free Housing Resource Fair will be held Tuesday, March 13, 2018, in Middletown Township, Monmouth County, to provide Sandy-impacted residents with information about helpful housing resources. While applications for grant funds and housing vouchers are no longer being accepted, resources such as housing counseling, utility assistance, and housing search help are still available.  
The Housing Resource Fair will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Middletown Township Central Library, 55 New Monmouth Road, in Middletown.
“Knowledgeable staff from a variety of organizations will be present in one place to answer questions and guide people to available resources,” said Lt. Governor Sheila Y. Oliver, DCA Commissioner. “We encourage Sandy-impacted people in need of help to attend.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with supportive services organizations, government agencies, leasing agents, landlords, and non-profit groups. The fair is open to Sandy-impacted residents from anywhere in New Jersey.
Housing Counselors from the Sandy Recovery Housing Counseling Program will also be present to offer attendees free HUD-certified housing counseling services for a wide array of housing-related issues, including foreclosure prevention, mortgages, budgeting, and rental guidance.
DCA is hosting the Housing Resource Fair in partnership with the Affordable Housing Alliance. Representatives of DCA and the Affordable Housing Alliance will attend the Housing Resource Fair.
DCA is holding the Housing Resource Fairs in those counties the federal government determined were most impacted by Sandy (Atlantic, Bergen, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Union). Information about upcoming Housing Resource Fairs will be provided as they are scheduled.
