Housing

The Montville Housing Committee is responsible for determining the eligibility of applicants to the Township's affordable housing program and notifying certified applicants as vacancies become available. Our affordable housing stock consists of both rental units and those available for purchase. Age restricted units are also available for senior citizens for purchase only. If you are interested in obtaining affordable housing, please complete and submit the application which can be found at the bottom of this page. Eligible applicants will be notified of rental vacancies or purchase opportunities on a first come, first serve basis. 

Waiting List
The Township has 245 existing single-family condo homes within Montville Chase, Hunting Hills, Longview, Briar Hill and Jade Mountain. Waiting lists are maintained when any of these units are offered for sale priority is established by the date the initial application was received. You will be contacted when your name is within the top 15 for each housing category (1-3 low through moderate). We do not give out what number you are on the list due to the volume of names. Financial certification is valid for 180 days, with renewals of 180 days and beyond.

Application


Do not send in any financial data or fees when registering your interest application.

There are 168 rental apartments (efficiency - 3 bedroom, low/moderate) at Rachel Gardens on Chapin Road. This is the only rental component in the Township. If you are interested in being put on the waiting list, fill out the application and return it to Montville. The Housing Office maintains a waiting list for all interested people by bedroom and income category. When a rental unit becomes available, the computer generated priority listing is sent to Rachel Gardens. Rachel Gardens will contact you direct to come in for financial certification interviews.
