Special Needs Housing Subsidy Loan Program (SNHSLP)

The Special Needs Housing Subsidy Loan Program (SNHSLP) provides capital financing to create permanent and affordable supportive housing and community residences for individuals with special needs.

New Jersey’s special needs populations include disabled and homeless veterans; homeless individuals and families; individuals with mental illness, and physical and developmental disabilities; victims of domestic violence; individuals in treatment for substance abuse; ex-offenders and youth offenders; youth aging out of foster care; runaway and homeless youth; individuals with AIDS/HIV; individuals 18 years and over coming out of nursing homes; and individuals in other emerging special needs groups identified by state agencies.

Under the SNHSLP, financing in the form of loans is available to eligible not-for-profit and for-profit developers, as well as government entities at the state, county and local level for new construction or the rehabilitation of housing.

The program enables residents with special needs to live with dignity and independence in communities of their choice with support services and other residential opportunities.
