A complete list of ProgramRentals apartment listings is available on the ProgramRentals website. ProgramRentals is the division of MZS Realty that specializes in government-subsidized apartments in New York City, ProgramRentals explains.
ProgramRentals helps apartment seekers who have Section 8 housing vouchers or other vouchers issued by the New York City Housing Authority, the NYC Housing Preservation and Development or the NYC Human Resources Administration. As of April 2015, the ProgramRentals listings include dozens of single-family homes ranging from one to five bedrooms in size and located in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx.
ProgramRentals offers significant services to landlords who are willing to accept government housing vouchers. The company screens tenants, shows apartments, handles inspections, completes all paperwork and delivers government-supplied rent checks to landlords within as little as 10 days, according to ProgramRentals.
The U.S. Housing and Urban Development department provides Section 8 housing to public agencies such as the NYC Housing Authority, which in turn provide housing vouchers to families with extremely low incomes. The government subsidies are intended to help low-income families qualify for and afford housing. While families often use their housing vouchers to rent government-subsidized housing, Section 8 housing vouchers are not limited to such housing and may be used for any private housing that meets the requirements of the local public agency's program, explains My Apartment Map.
