Portability - Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program 

“Portability” is defined as the ability for a housing choice voucher holder to move from the jurisdiction of its current housing authority to the jurisdiction of another housing authority operating a Housing Choice Voucher program.
Housing choice voucher holders who desire to move under portability to Brick, New Jersey, must contact their current housing authority, and: 

  • Inform your current housing authority of your interest in porting out to The Housing Authority of the Township of Brick (HATB).
  • Inform your current housing authority of HATB's jurisdiction.
  • Inform your current housing authority that HATB only administers portable vouchers and DOES NOT ABSORB.
  • Ask your current housing authority if you are eligible to port out?
  • Once eligibility is determined, then you should request that your housing authority prepare your portability packet.

Portability packets may be forwarded as follows:

Mail: Housing Authority of the Township of Brick
Ginger Meagher Section 8 Coordinator

Brick, NJ   08723

Fax:  Attention-Section 8 Department at 732-920-7604

  • Keep in contact with your current housing authority to verify the date your portability packet was forwarded to HATB.
  • When you receive verification from your current housing authority, you shall then contact the HATB HCV Department at 732-920-9400, for confirmation that HATB received your packet.
