Nyack’s Housing Authority has its own website at www.villageofnyackhousingauthority.com. To obtain forms or direct information, please visit their site.
Chartered by the State of New York, the Village of Nyack Housing Authority was first established in 1960, by the New York State legislature, as an institution to provide and facilitate access to affordable housing for the least financially fortunate of Nyack’s citizens. The Authority owns and operates three facilities (Waldron Terrace, Depew Manor and the Nyack Senior Center) which were built with funds and operating subsidies from New York State, and land, tax exempt status, and guaranteed services from the Village of Nyack. The Village acquired the land under “eminent domain” as part of a statewide Urban Renewal program.
In the last three decades, housing prices in Nyack and throughout the region have increased substantially, making it difficult for some residents and their families to remain the area. Residents have indicated in survey after survey that it is the cultural and economic diversity of Nyack’s population that help make it such an attractive community in which to live. Affordable housing programs help Nyack retain its diverse population.
The greatest need of the Nyack Housing Authority is the continued support and advice provided by the Nyack community, the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal, and by the Rockland County Community Development Office.
Here are some facts to inform village residents of the housing resources that are available to qualified applicants.
