Housing Authority of the City of Perth Amboy ( HAPA) has been helping families
since 2001 become less dependent on government entitlements and has helped families to
become self – sufficient, confident and successful members of our community.

Currently anyone who is a Perth Amboy Section 8 participant or Public Housing resident
can join our Family - Self Sufficiency program.

If you were once a part of our Self – Sufficiency program but didn’t take full advantage
of our program and would like to rejoin we are now accepting applications from past
