The Division of Housing administers three programs funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD): Section 8 Rental Assistance; Community Development Block Grant (CDBG); and HOME Investment Partnerships. All three programs are designed primarily to benefit lower income persons and households, and most of the rules governing them are set by HUD.

These programs began with the Community Development Block Grant in 1976. Section 8 Rental Assistance was added in 1978, and HOME in 1992. Together, these three programs distribute over $7 million each year to people and organizations within Middlesex County. The programs help pay families' rent, create new affordable housing, and provide needed services.
