Housing

Need help with housing? 

If you live in a NYCHA unit and you are a constituent of NY-14, our office is available to assist with certain matters, including looking into overdue maintenance issues. Contact our office at 718-662-5970 or through this form

For all other housing-related issues, we encourage constituents to seek out the following resources from New York City or the State.

 

  • Need affordable housing? NYC Housing Connect is New Yorkers' portal to find and apply for affordable housing opportunities across the five boroughs of New York City. 

  • Need help filling out forms for affordable housing? Housing ambassadors can also assist with the application process for various affordable housing opportunities. 

  • Facing eviction or landlord harassment? There is currently an eviction moratorium in place in New York City through August 31, 2021. If you are still facing harassment, call 311 and ask for the ‘tenant helpline.’ You can also go online to the tenant resource portal. If you need legal assistance, you may contact the Office of Civil Justice. If you need financial assistance, contact NYC HRA to determine if you are eligible for City FHEPS or the City’s One Shot Deal.   

 

If you’re a homeowner, there are also resources available for you. 

  • Have a tenant that’s not paying rent? Call 311. If this is causing financial difficulty, you can also ask 311 about the mortgage forbearance program. The state also has a program that can offer some relief. If you have a federally backed mortgage, you can also access relief here.  

  • Need help with repairs? Check out the City’s Home Repair Grants and Loan program.
