This bill provides municipalities with credit against their fair share affordable housing obligation for bedrooms in community residences and provides that certain types of affordable housing units will be credited as two units. Under the provisions of the bill, the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH), or its successor body, would credit one unit toward a municipality's fair share obligation for each bedroom in a community residence. The bill defines a "community residence" as a group home, supervised apartment, or other type of shared living environment that provides housing and treatment or specialized services needed to assist individuals with special needs to live in community settings, but which is not considered a health care facility. The term includes, but is not limited to, group homes, halfway houses, supervised apartment living arrangements, hostels, and community residences for the developmentally disabled. The bill also requires COAH to credit at least two units toward a municipality's fair share obligation for each unit of housing restricted for very low income households and each unit of special needs housing.
