New Jersey Future Statement on Fair Share Housing Center’s 2023 Report

TRENTON, April 26, 2023—New Jersey is one of the most racially and economically segregated states in the country, and one of the most expensive, due in part to exclusionary local zoning. Fair Share Housing Center’s new report, Dismantling Exclusionary Zoning: New Jersey’s Blueprint for Overcoming Segregation, demonstrates how enforcement of court-imposed requirements for local governments to provide affordable housing is addressing regional inequities, and how local zoning changes have a broader positive impact by stimulating housing development to benefit not just low-income and working class families, but middle-class households who also face the affordability crunch. This report creates a new starting point for the discussion on how New Jersey can increase supply, variety, and affordability of housing stock and remain an attractive place for households of all types and incomes.
