New Destiny’s website has a section on finding affordable housing. Most affordable housing is accessed through New York City’s housing lottery. You must register to be included. Click here to register and apply for affordable housing in New York City.
If you can’t access the internet, NYC Housing Ambassadors can help you apply for affordable housing, but you would need to share information with them.
If you are at risk of entering shelter and are not able to find anything please contact a New York City HomeBase office. To find the nearest location call 311 or visit www1.nyc.gov/site/dhs/prevention/homebase.page
