What do I need to register for a parking permit?

To obtain a parking permit, a new customer needs to send in a signed original parking permit application, a money order or bank certified check for the parking rate, a copy of the current New York State Vehicle Registration, and a copy of NYC or NY State Parking Permit for Persons with Disabilities, if applicable. See the Permit Information page for more details.

At this time, credit cards are not accepted for payment of parking permits.  Only money orders or bank certified checks are accepted.

I know someone who no longer uses their NYCHA parking permit. Can I use his/her parking permit?

No; parking permits are registered for a single vehicle.  If you are using a parking permit that is not attached to the vehicle that was registered for said permit, you are in violation of NYCHA Parking Services' rules and regulations.

What should I do if my permit is lost, stolen, or damaged?

You should apply for a replacement permit.  Please submit an application for a replacement permit. See the Permit Information page for more details.

What are the specific violations and the fines they carry?

Please refer to the Towing Violation FAQ page for the fines and the consequences for each violation.  Fines are not imposed; however, vehicles in violation may be towed at owner's expense.

How do I appeal a parking citation/tow?

Please send written correspondence to NYCHA Parking Services.  Please see the Contact Us page for mailing information.

What are the consequences of ignoring violations/citation notices?

Ignoring violations results in the towing of your vehicle and your privilege to park at NYCHA parking facilities may be revoked.

May I park in a surface lot handicapped space as long as I have a state issued blue handicapped hangtag or license plate?

Yes, please register your handicapped status when applying for the parking permit. Please see the Permit Information page for more details on how to apply for a permit.
