The Evans-Francis Estates project is unique because it would be the second of two affordable housing development in the suburbs of New Jersey to reach poor families with incomes as low as 20 to 60 percent of median income. The first such development was the award-winning Ethel R. Lawrence Homes in Mount Laurel Township, which opened in 2000.
Each home features a full-size washer and dryer, plank flooring, private entrances, and central air conditioning and heat. This community also includes a tot-lot and education center with computer lab. To apply for housing at this development, click HERE.
The project is located across the street from a regional hospital and other employment opportunities exist nearby. In addition, the neighborhood is served by two NJ Transit bus routes, which connect to major transit hubs in Camden and Philadelphia.
Evans Francis Estates is the only uncompleted portion of Short Hills Farm, a 135-acre development consisting of 220 single-family homes worth upwards of $500,000, another 50 market-rate townhouses and 50,000 square feet of commercial space.
