Thank you for visiting our website. The Ocean City Housing Authority (OCHA) of the City of Ocean City New Jersey is proud to maintain affordable housing stock while creating opportunities for broader neighborhood investments throughout the city. OCHA has been a part of the City of Ocean City five year Annual Plan Committee, and has worked with community partners and residents to develop a feasibility study that includes a Redevelopment Plan.
Beginning in the spring/fall of 2014-2015 we will begin Phase I of evaluating our properties while creating a new housing environment. This will raise the bar for housing authorities that were heavily impacted by Hurricane Sandy as well as provide the opportunity to evaluate or res-structure their properties in order to avoid future damage.
OCHA is also proud of its ongoing participation in the Gateway Community Action Partnership, Head Start Program. Our residents are participating in this community driven head start program which allows our family members to work during the day while their children are in day care, day care is located right on our property. As Ocean City continues its citywide redevelopment, OCHA is pleased to be playing a significant role in the revitalization of these key neighborhoods. OCHA applauds and shares these communities' commitment to ensuring that Ocean City Residents from all walks of life are included. We look forward to continuing our work with neighborhood stakeholders to create and implement plans that bring better and brighter housing to Ocean City and to neighborhoods throughout the city.
