    New Jersey Housing Mortgage and Finance Agency Message:

    Edgewater families are in search of long and short-term housing due to the devastating effects of the fire. The greatest need for housing is in and around Edgewater, Bergen County and the surrounding areas. Governor Christie and Department of Community Affairs Commissioner Richard E. Constable, III are urging New Jersey property providers to list housing opportunities right away. “The faster residents can find stable housing, the faster we can recover and rebuild from this devastating fire,” said Commissioner Constable, who is chair of the HMFA.

    Providers of rental housing can help by listing rental units on the completely free-to-use New Jersey Housing Resource Center at “Updates and new listings will continue for the weeks to come,” said HMFA Executive Director Anthony L. Marchetta. “Quickly stabilizing impacted residents’ lives will help them return to a semblance of normal and give them the foundation they need to recover from being displaced from their homes.”

    To begin the listing process today, go to, click “Add Housing” and follow the steps to complete the registration form. You will be contacted by phone or email with a username and password. The process of listing an available unit takes about 10 minutes, is completely free and can be done online or by calling 1-877-428-8844. If you need assistance listing your available units or do not have access to the internet, you can call the bilingual toll-free number 1-877-428-8844.  Thank you for your assistance.
