As a voucher holder, you have the option of leasing a unit anywhere in the United States, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands as long as there is a public housing agency operating an HCV Program. This option is known as Portability.
You must provide the name and full address of the housing authority you intend to port to, and the full name of the contact person for the housing authority. If you do not have this information, we will help you get it. Call the Customer Contact Center for assistance.
NYCHA is currently billing any incoming port until further notice. If you are a Public Housing Agency and would more information regarding NYCHA’s portability process, please contact
