Affordable Housing


Affordable Housing

Heyer, Gruel & Associates has extensive experience in affordable housing and housing related issues. Our firm has prepared over 40 Housing Elements and Fair Share Plans for a wide variety of communities. These plans have addressed affordable housing obligations ranging from less than 10 units to over 1,000 units.

We have represented municipalities in COAH mediation and helped defend municipalities in affordable housing litigation.

In preparing Housing Elements and Fair Share Plans, Heyer, Gruel & Associates works with the municipality to tailor a plan that addresses the community's needs, while addressing COAH's requirements. We recognize that in order to satisfy the requirements of COAH, as well as the needs and concerns of the community, creativity and thoroughness are critical.  Creative options are explored.

We have experience with virtually every technique available under COAH rules. These include local rehabilitation programs, regional contribution agreements, credits without controls, municipally sponsored housing, group homes, scattered site single family housing, senior housing, write-down, buy-down programs, accessory apartments, development fee ordinances and other creative techniques.

Combined with our Urban Design experience, HGA is also able to develop concept plans for housing authorities.

Some communities where we have worked include:

- Franklin Township Housing Authority
