Home Support Unit

NYC’s Home Support Unit
The New York City’s Home Support Unit was created in 2015 to work with landlords and brokers across New York City to lease vacant apartments to New Yorkers receiving rental assistance through government voucher programs. Prospective tenants include working families, retired seniors, disabled adults and veterans. A team of dedicated specialists work with landlords and brokers to connect them with tenants looking for long-term stable housing and helps expedite the leasing process to fill their vacancies faster. This includes setting up viewings, assisting with leasing paperwork and troubleshooting any issues that may arise.
