RUPCO is the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV)/Section 8 Program’s administrator in Ulster and Greene Counties. This Federal program, managed by New York State Homes and Community Renewal (NYS HCR), provides rental assistance for very low-income families. Eligible families are issued “vouchers” that show the family is eligible for rental assistance. Families use the vouchers to choose and lease affordable, privately owned rental housing. Rent is limited to 30-40% of the family’s adjusted monthly income and a subsidy covers the remaining portion of the rent. Voucher holders are assisted according to the federal requirements set by NYS HCR.
RUPCO administers more than 2,000 vouchers in Ulster and Greene counties through our offices in Kingston and Catskill. Per program requirements, every member of a household is assisted with their housing needs.
You may only apply for Section 8 when the waitlist is open.
