Community Housing Development Organizations

As a part of the HOME Investment Partnership Program, the ACIA has partnered with Community Housing Development Organizations to create over 15 new LMI housing units throughout Atlantic County. These units are made available to working families at affordable prices. Currently our two main CHDOs are Habitat for Humanity of Atlantic County and Pleasantville Housing and Redevelopment Corporation.
