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.
Due to COVID-19, NYCHA’s customer contact centers are currently not receiving walk in visitors. Applicants may call 718-707-7771 for assistance.
Rent is based on your family’s income. Most buildings have electricity and gas included in the rent.
You do not need to be a citizen to apply. However, at least one person who lives with you must be a citizen or have legal immigration status.
Accessible apartments are available for people with disabilities. Some apartments have been modified and are available for persons with mobility impairments. Other reasonable accommodations can be made as well.
Applicants are encouraged to apply online, however, paper applications are made available by mail as a reasonable accommodation. Applicants may call NYCHA’s Customer Contact Center (CCC) at 718-707-7771 to request paper application.
