The Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) will help
certain NYCHA Section 8 applicants who were issued NYCHA Section 8 vouchers that
were then withdrawn in December 2009. This assistance will not apply to new
HPD applicants or applicants on HPD's Section 8 waitlist.
NYCHA has sent letters to certain other Section 8 applicants whose vouchers
were withdrawn to provide them with an update. NYCHA has transferred 1944
of its current tenants to HPD.
All affected applicants and tenants should have received a letter from the
agency that will handle their existing or pending housing subsidy going
forward. All applicants who received an application from HPD should
complete and return the application they received by U.S. mail in the envelope
they received. If there are any questions, tenants or applicants should
call the agency that sent them a letter.
If you didn't get a letter from either HPD or NYCHA but your voucher was
withdrawn by NYCHA in December 2009, you should contact the NYCHA Customer
Contact Center at (718)707-7771. If you were referred by NYCHA to HPD
but did not receive an HPD application or a letter of invitation to HPD, please
conatct HPD's Client Services Unit at (917)286-4300.
