HUD Once Again Awards Family Self-Sufficiency Funding to North Bergen Housing Authority

NORTH BERGEN, NJ – It was announced this week that the Township of North Bergen Housing Authority (NBHA) has been awarded $123,554 by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program.


HUD provides FSS awards to public housing authorities with the strategic goal of increasing economic opportunity for families. The grants support the salaries and training needs of program coordinators who assist participating families receiving housing assistance. Program coordinators connect participating families to resources that will increase their earned income and financial empowerment, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, and make progress toward economic independence and self-sufficiency.“


This funding will benefit families by providing them with the support they need to navigate the complexities of receiving housing assistance. Thank you to the Department of Housing and Urban Development for recognizing the importance of our services to the North Bergen community,” said Gerald Sanzari, Executive Director of the NBHA.


(NBHA) provides comfortable and affordable housing in a safe, stable and secure living environment for low-income, senior, or disabled residents. The NBHA aligns its philosophy with that of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all and to build inclusive and sustainable communities free from discrimination. The Township of North Bergen Housing Authority (NBHA) serves a largely Latino/minority community and of the 986 public housing units they reserve 811 units for elderly and/or disabled persons.


Established in 1965, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is one of the executive departments of the U.S. federal government. It administers federal housing and urban development laws. The Department also works to ensure fair and equal housing opportunities for all.
