Is Nycha Turning Into Section 8?
Through a public-private partnership, via the Rental Assistance Demonstration program (RAD), all units will be converted into Section 8 and remain permanently affordable.
How can I transfer to another Section 8 unit? You may request a transfer after your initial lease term with the owner expires. You must submit the "Voucher Holder's Request for Transfer” form. You may not move until NYCHA approves your request.
