We Are Committed to Making the American Dream of Homeownership a Reality for All

In honor of National Homeownership Month, NCJAR and Rev. Dr. David Jefferson Sr., Esq of The Metropolitan Baptist Church in Newark, NJ, have partnered to narrow the racial homeownership gap in the communities of New Jersey. Together we are co-hosting a Housing Fair & Expo at Metropolitan Baptist Church on June 24, 2023 from 10am-2pm. Newark is the largest city in Essex County, New Jersey and within the NCJAR service footprint. Newark, and its proximity to New York City, make it a prime location for buyers.

NCJAR and The Metropolitan Baptist Church are mutually united and devoted to empowering and engaging the communities of Newark with the tools and resources necessary to make the American Dream of Homeownership a Reality for All New Jerseyans.

According to U.S. Census data, Newark has a 23.5% homeownership rate, as compared to the 64% homeownership rate in New Jersey. Due to the significant demand for rentals, demand will only increase with population growth. Creating opportunities for homeownership is critical. Homeownership is a commitment to economic growth which helps to generate jobs. The design, construction, and rehabilitation of homes employ local labor who use a vast array of local products and services. Homeownership also creates a feeling of security and permanence.
