FEDERAL CRIME INSURANCE PROGRAM
Statistics show that crime is quite prevalent in multiple dwellings where there are significant
concentrations of people. Tenants in these buildings often do not have crime insurance to provide
financial coverage when they are victimized by criminal incidents. The Federal Crime Insurance
Program in Title VI of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1970 is a program which offers
crime insurance to multiple dwelling projects without imposing significant burden on owners of such
buildings. Many tenants are not aware that such insurance can be obtained. A bill passed by the
New Jersey Assembly provides that owners of multiple dwellings must advise their tenants where
applications for such insurance, or its equal, may be obtained and that such owners shall not do or
refuse to do any act which would render the tenant ineligible for such crime insurance.
HOW DO YOU BUY IT?
Any licensed New Jersey property insurance agent or broker can help you submit an application.
Applications may also be obtained directly from the Servicing Company for New Jersey:
