WHERE DO YOUR TAX DOLLARS GO?
In NJ, your property tax bill pays for local government, school and county expenses. The City of Northfield collects your property taxes, and distributes most of this money to the other entities. So where exactly does your money go? Please see the chart attached. Roughly 28 cents of every dollar is retained by the City of Northfield for the purpose of providing all municipal services, including public safety, and the other 72 cents is sent to the local and regional schools, and to Atlantic County government, to fund the services they provide.

NO-INTEREST LOANS FOR HOUSING REHAB FOR QUALIFIED RESIDENTS
The Office of Community Development administers no-interest, deferred loans for homeowners in Atlantic County and various Municipalities for housing rehabilitation for very low and low income homeowners.
The Housing Rehabilitation Program can address all basic rehabilitation needs of a home, meaning plumbing, heating, electric and roof, plus windows, doors, insulation and exterior repair and painting.
In order to qualify for deferred loans under the Program, applicants must be the property owner and occupant, meet the income criteria (use weblink provided), have the home properly insured and have the Municipal property taxes paid up to the current quarter. An inspector from the Office of Community Development will complete a property inspection and advise you as to which improvements the Program can finance. A deferred loan has one payment at time of sale of the home, or transfer of title.
To qualify for a 100% interest free deferred loan, a household's income cannot exceed 80% of the Median Income for Atlantic County in accordance with HUD published Section 8 Income Guidelines.
Interested, or want more information? Call the Atlantic County Office of Community Development at 609-343-2390.
