Buy a Brick Build a Home Campaign – Benefits Bennett Avenue Project

On October 18, Morris Habitat is officially launching a brick fundraiser campaign in conjunction with its Bennett Avenue project in Randolph.  The $125, 4×8 bricks will comprise the pathways between the residential buildings into the community center to be built on the site.

Randolph residents and long-time Morris Habitat supporters, Ken and Christi Sauter are co-chairs for the brick campaign.

Phase l of the affordable housing project will consist of 13, 1-,2- and 3- bedroom units for low and moderate-income families.  Upon completion, a total of 25 affordable units will be built across several buildings. A playground and gazebo will also be constructed.

First floor units will be ADA accessible. The entire project is ENERGYSTAR certified for energy efficiency, EPA WaterSense certified for water efficiency and EPA Indoor AirPLUS certified for health protections.

The project is supported by home sponsors: Bayer, GAF, and New Jersey Natural Gas.

In June 2021, the Mountain Lakes High School Class of 2021 raised over $10,000 toward building one home through the sale of bricks.

Applications sought for affordable homes in Old Bridge, Plainfield

Courier News
Applications sought for affordable homes in Old Bridge, Plainfield

The dream of home ownership will become a reality for two low-income families.

Morris Habitat for Humanity is accepting applications for a low-income home in Old Bridge and another in Plainfield.

In Old Bridge, applications are being accepted for a three-bedroom home at 308 Norwood Ave. in the Laurence Harbor section of the township. The single-family, new construction, ranch-style home will feature one bath, a front porch and a small backyard. The sale price will be $203,179.

Applications are also being accepted for a three-bedroom home with 1 ½ baths in a duplex at 829 East 3rd St. in Plainfield. The sale price will be $114,000, depending upon income and household size.

Both homes will be sold as affordable homeownership to the selected applicant.

Interested applicants must attend one mandatory virtual meeting and information session to qualify. The lottery for eligible applicants is expected to be held in October.

Information sessions will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. July 28, 10 to 11 a.m. July 31, 6 to 7 p.m. Aug. 4, and 10 to 11 a.m. Aug. 7.

For registration, visit bit.ly/3hGCIOM.

The affordable 30-year mortgage will be held by Morris Habitat for Humanity, part of a global, nonprofit housing organization. The home will have a minimum 30-year deed restriction that allows modest equity upon resale, but mandates that it be sold at an affordable price to another income-eligible family. The prospective homeowners will contribute a minimum of 300 hours of sweat equity helping to build their home, as well as other homes.

In 2019, after celebrating 35 years of providing safe, decent and affordable housing for families in the Morris County area, Morris Habitat for Humanity, expanded by acquiring the service area of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plainfield & Middlesex County. The newly expanded affiliate operates under the Morris Habitat name and has a second office at 2 Randolph Road in Plainfield. The acquisition effectively doubled Morris Habitat’s service area to 68 municipalities spanning 1,000 square miles in Morris, Middlesex and parts of Union and Somerset Counties.

For more information, visit Morrishabitat.org or call 973-891-1934.
