40:37A-106. Legislative findings and declarations
The Legislature finds and declares that:
a. The supply of decent and affordable housing, particularly for families of low and moderate income has become increasingly scarce, especially in certain areas of this State.
b. In communities experiencing rapid development and the problems associated with the economic impact of land speculation, the cost of developing comprehensive housing programs is prohibitive, thus calling for action in the form of mortgage and housing finance assistance for the development of private housing programs by appropriate governmental agencies.
c. The "county improvement authorities law," P.L.1960, c. 183 (C. 40:37A-44 et seq.) provides for the creation of a county level agency which, with the cooperation and approval of the governing body of a municipality, may undertake certain improvement and development projects within that municipality. Such an agency, and county and municipal government interaction, are appropriate to provide a means of addressing the need to create a supply of decent and affordable housing, based upon programs which, at the State level, have shown substantial success in providing new and rehabilitated housing units, particularly in urban areas.
L.1979, c. 275, s. 1, eff. Jan. 3, 1980.
