The Hudson County Improvement Authority (HCIA) was created in September 1974 by the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders under, and by virtue of, the County Improvement Authorities Law as amended and supplemented. The HCIA is governed by a Board of Commissioners whose members are appointed by the Hudson County Executive and confirmed by the County’s Board of Chosen Freeholders.

The HCIA provides strategic planning and coordination of public policy initiatives on behalf of Hudson County municipalities and residents. The authority is responsible for a vast range of services, which include low interest financing for public and private initiatives, solid waste management, environmental education, recycling and transportation management, recreation services, and alternative energy initiatives.

Our Mission: To provide a wide range of services to residents and businesses of Hudson County at the least cost to taxpayers.
