The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) charges a daily location fee for the right to film or shoot photography from a NYCHA development. For purposes of this fee, a day is defined as anywhere from 0 -12 hours. Any shooting which continues past 12 hours will automatically be considered a second day.
In addition to the location fees, production companies or individuals may make a donation directly to NYCHA. We emphasize that all donations are voluntary and at the discretion of the donor.
The film or television production company must reimburse the Housing Authority for any and all overtime incurred by Housing Authority personnel, who may assist with TV or film productions at one of our developments.
For more information about location fees and overtime reimbursement, please contact NYCHA's Media Services Technicians:
