Thank you for your interest in becoming a Section 8 landlord. Our community is experiencing an affordable housing crisis and landlords can help keep our neighbors in Ulster and Greene counties housed during this uncertain time while benefiting from reliable and on-time payments, free advertising, and lower vacancy & turnover rates.
The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, also known as Section 8, is a Federal program managed by New York State Homes and Community Renewal. The HCV program provides rental assistance to very low-income families. Eligible families are issued “vouchers” that show the family is eligible for rental assistance. Families can choose and lease affordable, privately owned rental housing. Rent is limited to 30-40% of their adjusted monthly income and a subsidy covers the remaining portion of the rent.
