Creating Affordable Housing in New Rochelle
The high cost of housing in Westchester County has made affordable housing a priority in New Rochelle. The City has passed affordable housing legislation for new private developments requiring minimum set-asides of affordable units or a payment into an Affordable Housing Fund used to construct new units. Eligible renters may receive rental assistance from the City’s Section 8 Program to reduce their rent burden depending on the status of the waiting list.
New Rochelle also has a wide choice of affordable rental housing in the City.
Westchester County has information on affordable housing opportunities including rental units available on the County's website at www.westchestergov.com/homeseeker.
