Bedminster Welcomes New Agent for Affordable Housing Program

Bedminster Township is pleased to announce the hiring of a new firm to administer the Township’s affordable housing program.   Beginning January 1, 2021, the new Administrative Agent for the Affordable Housing Program in Bedminster Township will be CGP&H.  CGP&H stands for Community, Grants, Planning and Housing.  They specialize in all aspects of affordable housing, planning, COAH compliance, and the procurement of grants and loans for their clients.

Founded in 1993, CGP&H has grown to be a full service affordable housing implementation company in New Jersey.  Seasoned in all facets of community development, CGP&H boasts a team of 19 that includes professional planners, expert grant-writers, COAH certified housing specialists, licensed building inspectors, lead testers, and knowledgeable support staff. Client needs are promptly met with continuity, efficiency and individual attention to detail.

Bedminster residents who are part of the Affordable Housing Program will see no additional fees or costs with CGP&H.  Our residents will have greater access to a full team of affordable housing experts.  CGP&H has an interactive website that will greatly increase the marketing of available units in Bedminster’s affordable housing program, will streamline the process for qualifying applicants, and will showcase the financial assistance and other programs that Bedminster offers to our residents.  Bedminster will form an Affordable Housing Advisory Committee that will meet regularly with CGP&H to review the affordable housing program and to discuss concerns and propose recommendations.

Sharon DeCicco, Executive Director of the Bedminster Hills Housing Corporation (BHHC), will be retiring at the end of 2020 when the BHHC contract with Bedminster Township comes to an end.  Bedminster Township would like to thank Ms. DeCicco for her many years of service to the Affordable Housing Program in Bedminster Township.

CGP&H will begin working with BHHC on November 1, 2020 in order to provide a seamless transition between agencies.  Again, Bedminster Township thanks Ms. DeCicco and the BHHC and welcomes CGP&H during this period of transition.
