Are there other facilities that the Authority manages?
The Authority receives funds from the federal government (HUD) to administer these government subsidized housing programs. The Authority serves as contract administrator for Rockland Garden Apartments and manages Leonard Cooke Pine Street Homes.
Do other communities in Rockland County have affordable housing programs?
Yes – but none are sponsored by local government, and none are exclusively available to residents of a particular village.
Is there enough affordable housing for qualifying Nyack residents?
Eligible applicants for each program number well more than the total number of units in any program, so those interested in any of the programs operated by the Village of Nyack Housing Authority should contact the office for additional information. Currently the Section 8 Housing Assistance program is closed and is not accepting applications.
Will these units always be available for low-income people?
Facilities owned by the Housing Authority will always be available. However, the rents will continue to depend on the availability of government and other grants to supplement maintenance and operating costs. Units in privately owned facilities will continue to depend on the owners’ decision to participate in federal programs like HUD Section 8.
