The application will not be available before 9:00am on Monday, January 9, 2023


NOTE FROM THE NAVIGATOR: Applications will be accepted all week long until Thursday, January 12 at 11:59 pm, so there is no rush to apply exactly at 9 am on Monday, 1/9.

You will most likely be asked to create a user name and password in order to access the application.

If you already have a user name and password you created to access another application in the past, use that one--you don't have to create a new one.

Another way to access the application on January 9th is to go to the Housing Authority of Bergen County's home page https://habcnj.org/


Assistance completing online pre-applications will be provided by the Housing Authority at One Bergen County Plaza, 2nd Floor, Hackensack, NJ 07601. Staff will be made available to assist with the completion of pre-applications from Monday January 9, 2023 through Thursday January 12, 2023 between 9:00 am and 3:30 pm. In our continued effort to protect our residents, staff and applicants, we require anyone arriving to the Hackensack office to wear a mask.


A random selection lottery will be conducted to select 250 eligible applicants to be placed on the waiting list for future potential vacancies. Submission of a pre-application does not guarantee placement on the waiting list. Only one pre-application per household will be accepted. Written and faxed applications will not be accepted.


To be eligible for the lottery, all completed applications must be received by 11:59 pm on Thursday, January 12, 2023. Applications received after 11:59 pm on Thursday, January 12, 2023, will be declined.
