Division of Housing and Community Renewal

Housing Preference for Disabled Veterans

On November 27, 2007, the Private Housing Finance Law was amended to require housing companies to provide disabled veterans with a preference in admission to Mitchell-Lama housing developments. In advance of that Law's enactment, the Division of Housing and Community Renewal (Division) issued a memorandum directing housing companies on how they should implement the law.

As a result, disabled veterans have not received the intended housing preference.
