Housing Choice Voucher Program

The Housing Choice Voucher Program (also known as “Section 8”) is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide rental assistance to income‐eligible individuals and families. The Town of Mamaroneck Public Housing Agency (PHA) is authorized by HUD to administer 647 vouchers, however limited funding prevents the PHA from issuing all of the vouchers available. There is currently a waiting list for rental assistance, with an average wait time of more than 1 year.

Information for Applicants

 
The Town of Mamaroneck Housing Choice Voucher Program Waiting List is currently closed. We are not accepting applications at this time. Please check back here from time to time for further information about opening the waiting list. The Town of Mamaroneck will publish a notice in the newpaper and other media in order to reach a wide audience.

When the waiting list is open, all applicants must meet the following criteria in order to apply:

  • Household income from all sources cannot be more than 50% of the median income for Westchester County based on family size. Click on the HUD web page to find the most current Income Limits. 
    • Search for the current year, click on the link and follow the prompts to search for New York and then Westchester County. The income limits for that year will be displayed, to help you determine if you are eligible for federal housing voucher assistance. 
    • Note: HUD sets the income limits for eligibility each year in March. Income is redetermined when an applicant is called off the waiting list.  Eligibility to apply does not guarantee eligibility to receive a voucher.
  • All applicants selected from the waiting list who are deemed eligible and issued a Voucher will be required to live in the Town of Mamaroneck, Village of Mamaroneck, or Village of Larchmont for a minimum of 12 months in order to be considered eligible to move outside of Westchester County.  
    • Proof of residency will be required, including verifiable proof of payment of rent on the leased unit, and school enrollment verification for children. 
    • Consideration will be given to those who request to "lease in place" as a reasonable accommodation for a documented disability that proves a relationship between their current unit and their request for an accommodation.
  • The Town of Mamaroneck PHA does not apply any preferences to anyone who applies to the waiting list.
