MHACY is the second largest public housing authority in the NYC area.
The Authority administers a Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program, and under that program over 2,700 apartments are leased by our participants in units owned by over 800 private landlords.
MHACY’s housing portfolio includes over 2000 public housing apartments that are located within 18 properties that are situated throughout Yonkers. With the benefit of HUD’s Rental Demonstration Program (“RAD”), MHACY is planning the redevelopment of its entire public housing portfolio, so that longstanding capital needs can be addressed.
MHACY has also partnered with private developers to develop over 400 affordable apartments in Yonkers. These properties are privately managed and operated under agreements with the State of New York and MHACY. The properties maintain site based waiting lists and applicants must apply at these sites separately.
