Agency: DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY AFFAIRS
Synopsis: Petitioner sought and was denied relocation assistance from the City of Hoboken when his apartment became uninhabitable and unsafe due to fire and water damage. After the fire, petitioner and his family were told to move from the premises by the fire department, but did not do so. The administrative law judge found that the Relocation Assistance Law of 1967, N.J.S.A. 52:31B-1, et seq. and the Relocation Assistance Act, N.J.S.A. 20:4-1 were enacted to assist people displaced due to state and local activities. N.J.A.C. 5:11-2. l(b) which was promulgated to effectuate the cited statutes, clearly indicates that there shall be no relocation benefits for persons displaced by fire. Since petitioner did not show that the regulation was unduly onerous, unreasonable or outside the scope of delegated authority or that the premises were closed or condemned by any governmental agency, his request for assistance was properly denied.
