City of Peekskill Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program

 

The Section 8 Rental Assistance Program is a Federally-funded program created to assist lower income individuals and families in obtaining safe and decent housing, enabling these households to live and work within the City of Peekskill. Under the Section 8 Program, the City assists the tenant by making a monthly payment to the landlords on behalf of the eligible tenant. This payment constitutes the difference between the tenant's payment and the maximum rent allowable by the Federal government for the apartment (usually close to the fair market rent for the unit). For more information please contact the Section 8 Office at 914-734-4216.
