The State of New Jersey requires the renting and selling of affordable homes include a step that randomizes the order in which households will be offered available units. Random selection will be conducted at the start of a new project. All preliminary applications that are received by the random selection deadline are included in a lottery. We utilize a computer program that randomizes the preliminary applications to assign lottery numbers. These numbers are utilized to establish the priority of applicants. After the initial lottery period, the priority of preliminary applications is established by the date the application was received. However, CGP&H reserves the right to invoke random selection at any time.
