Fair Housing in New Jersey

After more than a decade litigation, the NJ Supreme Court issued a ruling in 2015 that returned enforcement of the Fair Housing Act and the Mount Laurel Doctrine to NJ's trial courts. The decision reaffirms the Mount Laurel Doctrine on municipal affordable housing obligations and ushers in a new era of intense fair share housing planning and, hopefully, affordable housing production. This guide aims to help nonprofits and advocates understand and participate in this process, as municipalities, builders, planners, nonprofits, advocates, and citizens strive to prepare and adopt updated municipal housing elements and fair share plans, create realistic housing opportunities, and obtain court determinations of municipal fair share housing obligations and approvals of compliance plans.
