HUD helps apartment owners offer reduced rents to low-income tenants. To apply, contact or visit the management office of each apartment building that interests you. There are also several subsidized rental programs administered by New York State and New York City listed below. Click each link for additional information.
Please note that although many New York City subsidized housing lotteries are available via the www.nyc.gov/housingconnect website, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the New York City Housing Development Corporation, and the New York State Housing Finance Agency all have developments that require separate applications. It is necessary to check all listing sites above to access all available affordable housing opportunities.
Public Housing and Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8)
To apply for either type of help, visit your local Public Housing Agency (PHA).
Some PHAs have long waiting lists, so you may want to apply at more than one PHA. Your PHA can also give you a list of locations at which your voucher can be used.
