For those seeking Affordable Housing in Princeton, a major hurdle has been surmounted. Applications, which can be completed in either English or Spanish, are now available online. The universal rental application can be used for any of Princeton’s Affordable Housing rental units. The properties covered in the form include Elm Court, Harriet Bryant House, Griggs Farm, Princeton Community Village, Merwick Stanworth, Avalon Bay, and the Princeton Housing Authority properties. The online application can be found and submitted online at www.princetoncommunityhousing.org.
Previously, an applicant was required to fill out multiple affordable rental applications, one for each property.
Using the online application, the application will be emailed automatically to each affordable housing office in which the applicant is interested. Within three weeks, the applicant will receive a notification of preliminary eligibility by either regular mail, electronic mail or phone call.
The Princeton Public Library offers free access to computers and the internet which enables applicants to complete and submit their forms online. Applicants can request assistance at the information desk on the second floor. Help is available in English, Spanish, and Mandarin.
