Requests for waivers from the express provisions of the NJHMFA's regulations may be made by submitting such request to the attention of the Executive Director. Waivers may be granted only by the NJHMFA Board when such waiver would not contravene the provisions of the NJHMFA's enabling statute, N.J.S.A. 55:14K-1 et seq., and upon a finding that, in granting the waiver, the Board will be promoting the statutory purposes of the HMFA.

The NJHMFA's waiver regulation is found at N.J.A.C. 5:80-19.
