Hoboken’s Affordable Housing Wait List Is 858 People Long: Report

If you’re waiting for public housing in Hoboken, it might not hurt to avoid putting all of your eggs in one basket. According to a recent report, 858 people are on the waiting list for affordable housing in Hoboken, some of whom may wait for up to five years for a unit to become available. The city’s wait list for Section 8 vouchers last took applicants in 2004, and the public housing wait list has been closed since November of 2011, the Hudson Reporter wrote. Even the new director of the Hoboken Housing Authority – the agency responsible for overseeing the city’s low-income and senior citizen housing – is having trouble finding an affordable place to live in Hoboken, the Hudson Reporter stated.
