The Princeton Housing Authority (PHA), established in 1938, is a public agency that provides subsidized housing to qualified individuals and families.

The Authority is independent from the Municipality of Princeton and is regulated by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA). A board of seven Commissioners, five appointed by the town council, one by the mayor and one by the DCA, is responsible for oversight and establishing policy. It is also a requirement that one commissioner must be a resident of the Princeton Housing Authority.

Our Mission

To provide safe and decent affordable housing to qualified low-income families and individuals. The PHA also aims to promote self-sufficiency initiatives and improve the quality of life and economic stability of its residents.
