Section 8 / Rental Subsidy Programs
Section 8 / Rental Subsidy Programs
The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) administers a number of rental subsidy programs. The majority of rental assistance is provided through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, making up 80 percent of the rental assitance administered by HPD. In total, HPD serives over 39,000 households in all five boroughs. Over 9,000 landlords currently participate in HPD's programs.
Section 8, also known as the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, provides federal funding for subsidies that help eligible low-income families rent decent, safe, and affordable housing in a neighborhood of their choice. The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) and New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR) also operate Section 8 programs in New York City.
Other rental assistance provided by HPD includes Continuum of Care Shelter Plus Care (CoC SPC), Continuum of Care Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy (CoC Mod SRO), NYC 15/15, and Moderate Rehabilitation (Mod Rehab). Learn more about these Rental Subsidy Programs.
In all programs, families pay a reasonable share of their income toward rent (typically around 30 percent of monthly household income) and the subsidy, paid by HPD directly to the landlord, makes up the difference. To continue receiving assistance, participating families and property owners must meet certain program requirements, including federal Housing Quality Standards.
