About NYCHA

The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), the largest public housing authority in North America, was created in 1935 to provide decent, affordable housing for low- and moderate-income New Yorkers. NYCHA is home to roughly 1 in 16 New Yorkers across over 177,569 apartments within 335 housing developments through public housing, Section 8, and PACT/RAD programs. NYCHA serves over 339,900 residents in 162,143 apartments within 277 housing developments through the conventional public housing program (Section 9). NYCHA also serves 29,789 authorized residents in 15,426 units within 58 developments that have been converted under the Permanent Affordability Commitment Together (PACT) program. In addition, NYCHA connects residents to opportunities in financial empowerment, business development, career advancement, and educational programs. With a housing stock that spans all five boroughs, NYCHA is a city within a city. View NYCHA's 2022 Fact Sheet.
