Newark Housing Authority

Founded in 1938, the Newark Housing Authority (NHA) is charged with providing low-income city residents with decent, safe, and affordable housing.  NHA is the largest public housing authority in New Jersey (and the eleventh largest in the country), with approximately 10,000 housing units and $338 million worth of construction in the pipeline, including new mixed-income housing, renovated public housing, retail development, a vocational training center, a recreation center, and new green space.  To encourage local participation in higher education, the Authority launched Newark College Promise in 2014, a program which provides annual, renewable scholarships to Newark high school seniors living in public housing who have been accepted into a public New Jersey four-year college/university or Essex County College.
