Rental Assistance

Audio Description: Information on how DHS is helping even more New Yorkers move out of shelter and secure permanent housing.

Text on screen: Rental assistance programs help New Yorkers experiencing homelessness move out of shelter and into stable housing, just like Richard and Doris. Since 2014, more than 71,000 homeless New Yorkers have found permanent home through these programs. With more landlords and brokers opening doors for our neighbors in need, we're turning the tide on homelessness in New York City. To learn more about financial incentives for landlords and brokers, call or visit nyc.gov/linc or 212-232-0560.


The New York City Department of Social Services (DSS) has combined the LINC, SEPS, and CITYFEPS programs into the CityFHEPS program to streamline service for tenants and landlords. Information on CityFHEPS and other rental assistance programs is available at http://nyc.gov/dsshousing.
