Living in Communities (LINC)

Please note that LINC (Living in Communities) is not a program offered by New Destiny.

Effective October 29, 2018, LINC 1, 2, 4, and 5 rental assistance programs are being converted to a new program – CityFHEPS. Recipients of LINC 1, 2, 4, and 5 will be transferred to CityFHEPS at their first renewal effective on or after April 19, 2019, if they remain income eligible.

Households and individuals with only a shopping letter will be re-screened for eligibility for the new program. For more information on eligibility requirements please contact a case manager or housing specialist at a DHS shelter, HRA shelter or Homebase provider, or call HRA’s Rental Assistance Call Center at 929-221-0043.

LINC 3 and 6 have been transitioned to other programs:

LINC 3 (for Domestic Violence Survivors) has been consolidated into FHEPS. Click here for information on FHEPS.   

If you are the recipient of LINC 3, you should receive your updated shopping letter/conversion confirmation in the mail. Updated shopping letters were mailed starting in December 2017. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the The Legal Aid Society or your LINC UP provider.

LINC 6 is now Pathway Home. Click here for information on Pathway Home.
