New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) applicants must meet one of NYCHA’s working or needs-based priorities to apply for public housing. Homeless families and singles are no longer considered an emergency priority. Obtaining housing through a non-emergency priority may take several years.

Applicants for public housing must be 18 or older and earning income that falls under NYCHA’s income limits.

NYCHA households pay 30% of their income or their Public Assistance shelter allowance towards rent.

Victims of domestic violence (VDV) are among the groups considered emergency priorities for public housing and therefore have much shorter waiting periods than non-emergency applicants.

Applications for NYCHA housing are submitted online. Instructions on how to apply for NYCHA housing can be found on NYCHA’s website
