New York eviction prevention programs and homeless assistance.

Non-profit and government agencies across New York partner with the Bureau of Housing and Support Services and county social service offices to offer emergency homeless prevention as well as rapid rehousing. There may be rental and housing assistance to stop further evictions and agencies offer assistance to the currently homeless. The range of programs offered are wide ranging, and will vary by town, agency, and county listed below. Some of the main resources available are noted below, however the availability of funds is always limited.

Funds to stop eviction, homelessness and foreclosure in New York

A more pro-active program is the Homeless Intervention Program (HIP). The goal is to improve stability of tenants in the state. So this can address issues such as any back rent that is due and provide counseling to struggling tenants. Various services are offered in New York as part of this

Free legal support or mediation is available to both prevent evictions and find solutions between landlords and tenants. Individuals can also get information on their rights when it comes to renting or leasing out an apartment. Advocacy is also provided by case management.

The organizations that offer HIP can also provide referrals. Not only can this include information on emergency rent or loan programs to help address the eviction notice, but they can assist with other matters as well. This includes domestic violence issues, substance abuse, housekeeping, education, budgeting, access to day care, employment, parenting, and physical and mental health care.

New York state also tends to give tenant facing eviction, or homeowners facing foreclosure, free legal advice as well as mediation services. Many pro-bono as well as government supported law firms help low income households. They also help immigrants as well as minorities facing housing discrimination or illegal evictions. Find a list of free law firms in New York State.




HOPWA, or the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS, relies on federal government grants. A number of housing services are offered as part of this. It is for individuals with HIV and/or AIDs as well as their immediate family members.

  • Financial assistance can include tenant rental or project-based assistance. There are federal grants available in New York for short-term payments for rent, utility bills or a mortgage payment.
  • Case management is for participants and their families. Social workers and medical providers can help them achieve economic/self-sufficiency.

Another similar service is Supplemental Homeless Intervention Program, or SHIP. This offers many of the same resources as the resource listed above. For individuals that are currently homeless, there may be emergency funds available from the New York non-profits for paying a security deposit. Families with an eviction notice can also look into emergency, one time funds to pay back rent. A key objective is for the landlord and tenant to work together, often with a mediator, to find a solution or provide time to the tenant to find a new, affordable apartment to live in.

Emergency Food and Shelter Grants are funded by the federal government and there may be additional support from the state of New York. The non-profits will use this funding in an effort to both provide financial aid for housing needs as well as other services, such as food, referrals, and self-sufficiency.

Homeless prevention activities can be offered from EFSG funding. Not only will this include some type of aid, or a no interest loan for paying rent, but some agencies may even help with mortgage expenses. Those that are homeless can use the services of a shelter and then possible obtain funding from EFSG for paying the deposit or first month’s rent. Find other grant based financial aid programs.





Short term rehousing programs

Shelters and transitional housing is part of the Single Room Occupancy Support Services Program, or SRO. Counseling, case management, employment and other services are available to guests. Some churches, charities, and non-profits operate these short term shelters in New York. They are intended to provide a place to stay, but more importantly help the individual gain stability and find stable living arrangements. Section 8 housing can be used to help low income families as well as minorities find and pay for affordable housing too. Some shelters are for single parents, veterans, or those with a mental illness. Continue to locate low cost housing resources.

Grants from Bureau of Housing and Support Services are used to establish Supported Housing for Families and Young Adults centers. It will help parents gain employment. Other workshops include parenting skills development, family reunification and stabilization, self-sufficiency, and also enhancement and employment retention. It can also help families meet the TANF eligibility requirements in New York.

The New York Homeless Housing and Assistance Program is for those classified by HUD and/or the Commissioner of the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance as being homeless. They need to be unable to secure stable and permanent housing on their own, without special government assistance. However they can get help in locating low income apartments to live in.

While any individual that meets the official guidelines may qualify, many programs help the so called special needs populations which may be veterans, the elderly, disabled, or those with a substance abuse.  Clients may access a number of services from the Homeless Housing and Assistance Program, including financial support, referrals, and case management.

Leading local agencies to call in New York

The listing of services above are some of the main housing programs available, however what is offered by site and non-profit will vary greatly. In other words, not every organization in New York will offer financial aid for rent. Many sites may just provide referrals, emergency shelter, or case management. Some of the non-profits will even run out of funding as the demand is very high.

These countywide resources are in addition to the more extensive listing of eviction prevention agencies listed below. When a family is facing an emergency, and if qualified, cash grants for security deposits or rent arrears are combined with legal aid and more to stop homelessness.
