Section 8 Cases
The Section 8 rental assistance program helps tenants afford housing by providing a rent voucher. The program is administered federally by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”), and administered locally in NYC by the New York City Housing Authority (“NYCHA”). In many cases, the tenant will be responsible to pay a part of the rent that is not covered by the Section 8 voucher. In NYC, landlords accept Section 8 tenants because, at a minimum, they will receive the rent from the voucher. Section 8 tenants have substantial legal protections.
