How to Find Housing

Welcome, prospective applicants. HPD offers a wide variety of programs that create newly constructed or renovated affordable rental housing throughout the five boroughs. HPD and its partners use city subsidies and other financing tools to make these apartments affordable to low-, moderate-, and middle-income individuals and families.

NYC Housing Connect

Through NYC Housing Connect, you can learn how to apply for affordable housing in New York City, view current and upcoming housing opportunities, and complete an application for your household. The NYC Housing Connect page provides instructions and information on applying for affordable housing.


The Mitchell-Lama program provides affordable rental and cooperative housing to moderate- and middle-income families. Through NYC Mitchell-Lama Connect, you can view Mitchell-Lama developments that are accepting entries, create and update your account profile, and submit entries to waiting list lotteries.

City-Subsidized Rental Opportunities

The City-Subsidized Rental Opportunities page has a complete list of rental opportunities currently accepting applications, some of which are not available via Housing Connect.


Visit the Find Housing Resources page for additional information for apartment seekers.

Disclaimer: Applicants to City-subsidized affordable housing are not required to pay a fee to apply. If you are solicited to pay a fee to apply, contact the HPD Office of the Inspector General at (212) 825-3502.
