NYS HCR Section 8 Waiting List
Questions & Answers

Q: How do I obtain a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher application from the HCR Subsidy Services Bureau?
A. The waiting list in our agency's State-administered Section 8 HCV Program in New York City is currently closed due to the large number of families already on that list. There are no immediate plans for re-opening that list in the near future.

Q: Who do I contact to find out the status of my HCR Pre-Application?
A. Inquiries about pre-applications submitted to our State-administered Section 8 HCV Program in New York City should be directed to the NYS HCR Subsidy Services Bureau at (212) 480-6674 or (212) 480-6672.

Q: If I move to another residence, will information about my pre-application be forwarded to my new address?
A. If you change your home or mailing address for any reason, you must notify the Subsidy Services Bureau IN WRITING so that your pre-application can be updated with this information. If any correspondence sent to you from the NYS HCR Section 8 HCV Program is returned to NYS HCR by the U. S. Post Office as undeliverable, your pre-application will be invalidated and your name removed from the Subsidy Services Bureau waiting list. Therefore, please notify the Subsidy Services Bureau of any changes in your home and/or mailing address.
