Lease Your Apartment

Landlords qualify to get $4,300 for working with us to rent your apartment to a tenant based in the 5 boroughs of New York City.

The City of New York’s Home Support Unit (HSU) works with landlords, across the five boroughs to lease vacant apartments to qualified New Yorkers receiving rental assistance.

Trough this program we are able to connect landlords with housing resources administered by the City of New York.  We help participating landlords to navigate the rental process by arranging viewings and assisting with leasing paperwork, that provides substantial financial incentives to landlords for accepting qualifying tenants into stable housing. HSU also has an in-house Landlord Customer Service team that quickly responds to and resolves payment questions as well as any other issues that arise during tenancy.

By leasing your vacant apartment or rooms to New York City you may be eligible for the following*:

  • $4,300 Landlord Bonus (Apartments Only)
  • Unit Hold Incentive– covers an additional month’s rent when the landlord agrees to accept a DSS/DHS/HRA client and not lease the unit to anyone else during a period of up to 30 days, covering any anticipated vacancy expense. (Apartments Only)
  • First month of rent in full and 3 months of subsidy payments paid up front. (Rooms Only)
  • Security Voucher (equivalent to one month’s rent)

Monthly rents for participating program:

City Fighting Homelessness & Eviction Prevention Supplement (CityFHEPS)
