Section 8 helps low- and-moderate-income families rent homes. Generally, families pay no more than 40 percent of their monthly income toward their rent share. NYCHA pays the remaining amount to the owner on the family's behalf.
People with low and moderate income can obtain affordable housing through the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA). NYCHA has Senior and Community Centers and offers residents programs to help find work and provides education on how to manage money and finances.
