Housing supported by the Office of Housing is rent- and income-restricted to ensure that the affordable units we fund are occupied by those who need it most. The below income and rent limits are based off HUD figures, annually updated, and posted as soon as they are available. Each program has a particular income focus and requirements, and is thus listed separately.
If your rent is paid via benefits you receive from the NYC Human Resources Administration, please review the monthly rent statement to be sure that last month’s payment was received and that no other charges are due. If additional monies are due, please mail your payment with the remittance slip in the enclosed envelope to the address printed on the slip.
Housing discrimination is prohibited by the Fair Housing Act. Discrimination covered by the Act can take many different forms beyond just raising prices or lying about availability. For example, the Act addresses wheelchair access in some newer properties. Learn what the Fair Housing Act covers, how to complain, and how the investigation process works.
You can store multiple payment methods in your account, allowing you to pay your rent from multiple sources – for example, part from checking, part from savings, and part on a debit/credit card. More information about rent payment upgrades is coming shortly. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact your property management office.
In 2017, 37,000 homes were built as rentals, according to the National Association of Home Builders. That grew to 43,000 last year, or just under 5% of total single-family housing starts.

If you still prefer to pay by mail, please ensure you are mailing your rent EARLY to allow three to five business days for delivery and processing. When you receive your monthly rent statement each month, just tear off the remittance slip and place it in the enclosed envelope with your check or money order made out to “New York City Housing Authority.”
This week a small Tampa, Florida-based builder, ERC Homebuilders, is launching a "soft" IPO, hoping to raise $100 million to build more than 1,000 rental homes across the state.

Accredited and nonaccredited investors can participate.
"I think that these funds, these investor groups are looking at a cultural move away from your garden apartment with elevators, swimming pools, tennis courts and common areas," Ellenburg said. "Homeownership is looking less desirable to some, particularly in the affordable arena, and they have a chance, for very close to the same price, to rent a three-bedroom, two-bath or a four-bedroom, three-bath home and are able to call it their own."
