The Princeton commitment to Affordable Housing provides housing opportunities for a broad range of residents from diverse social and economic backgrounds. The Affordable Housing Department consists of the rental and sales programs. The two main providers of affordable rental housing in Princeton are Princeton Community Housing and Princeton Housing Authority.
Princeton Community Housing (PCH) is the largest provider of low and moderate income housing in Princeton. They own and manage Elm Court, Griggs Farm, Harriet Bryan House, and Princeton Community Village. Princeton Community Housing serves as the Administrative Agent for the Municipality of Princeton's affordable rental units, Merwick Stanworth, and Hopewell's Affordable Sales Program.
Princeton Housing Authority (PHA) is a federally funded corporation that owns and manages 236 family and senior/disabled apartments within five developments throughout Princeton. Princeton Housing Authority is independent from the Municipality of Princeton and is regulated by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development and the NJ Department of Community Affairs.
The Princeton Affordable Housing Department (PAH) administers the sales program in Princeton and oversees the affordable rental program. The Affordable Housing Sales Program offers properties for sale in Washington Oaks, Griggs Farm, and the former Princeton Borough.
