Find out if Bldg accepts Section 8 ?

Postby Brooklyn Babe » Sat Apr 13, 2002 2:46 pm

I don't know much about Section 8. Without asking Mgmnt. directly, is there an online method of checking to see if a building accepts Section 8 applicants? I checked www.nyc.gov, but couldn't find anything...Thanks

Find the answer myself:
For a statewide search of buildings listed under Section 8 program go to:
http://www.hud.gov/sec8/sec8.cfm
For NY specific go to:
http://www.hud.gov/cgi-bin/section8/sec8city.pl?statename=NY:New%20York&sitelocated=sec8/&searchpagename=sec8.cfm

I realize this post is decades old!

BUT same question this time around!

There has been a new Housing Choice Voucher Section 8 lottery late May 2021. For those selected, how can they find out if their building accepts Section 8 (now called: HCV) without directly asking landlord.

Those two link in this thread are broken. Contact with the HCR/HCV Sec 8 program is all automated now.

Any link to list of buildings accepting such vouchers?

Thanks
