FREEHOLD, NJ –The Monmouth County Public Housing Agency will be accepting pre-applications for a project-based voucher waiting list for Kershaw Commons in Freehold Township. The vouchers will be available to people who would like to live at Kershaw Commons, 600 Applewood Dr., in one of the 30 housing units available under the program.

To be eligible, an adult member of a household must meet income requirements and have a long-term disability that qualifies household members for support services available at Kershaw Commons. The services include, but are not limited to, multiple sclerosis (MS) specific self-help groups; MS wellness classes, financial assistance and information and referral to MS medical personnel and counseling.
