New York City Housing Authority
The New York City Housing Authority administers a Conventional Public Housing Program and citywide Section 8 Leased Housing Program in rental apartments. NYCHA was created in 1934 and is the largest public housing authority in North America. Families in the Conventional and Section 8 programs pay no more than 30 percent of their family income for rent. The rent difference is subsidized by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). To learn more about the NYCHA and its programs, click HERE.
