What Do We Do

The Burlington Housing Authority (BHA) was established in 1942. The BHA provides affordable housing apartments for 90 families (including seniors). The sites are:

  • Dunbar Homes (located at Belmont, Wall and Morris Avenue) and
  • Stone Villa (located at Walnut, Third, Wood and Morris Avenue).

The management of the BHA consists of the Executive Director and the Public Housing Manager. In addition, a Maintenance and Security Staff aid in the daily operation of the BHA. The BHA is governed by a seven member Board of Commissioners, made up of five Council appointees, and one each appointed by the Mayor and the NJ Dept. of Community Affairs (DCA).

Applications for housing can be picked up in person on Wednesdays between the hours of 9am and 3pm at 800 Walnut Street, Burlington. Vacancies are filled from a waiting list created through assessment of eligibility criteria including income, credit and rental /mortgage history analysis. Criminal history screening is also performed.

The BHA is subsidized, in part, by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD constantly measures the performance of Housing Authorities through a system called, Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS). This system measures a Housing Authority’s performance in the areas of:
Financial Management,
Operations Management,
Physical Condition of the Property, and
Resident Services and Satisfaction.

On April 30, 2016, HUD designated the City of Burlington Housing Authority the status of

“High Performer” with a score of 98%

for fiscal year 2015.
