The Housing Choice Voucher program provides financial assistance to eligible lower income individuals and families to enable them to live in decent, safe and sanitary housing within our community. The Town of Mamaroneck voucher program relies on property owners with rental units anywhere in Westchester County to lease their available apartments to our voucher holders.
Senior citizens, Veterans, people with disabilities, lower income individuals, and working families who receive voucher assistance generally pay approximately 30% of their gross income toward the rent and the voucher program covers the rest.
Each year in October, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) determines the average Fair Market Rent for Westchester County by individual zip code. HUD permits the Town to authorize rents of up to 110% of the fair market rent for units, based on factors such as location, condition, amenities, etc., where applicable.
Clicking on this link to the Small Area Fair Market Rents will take you to the most current rents in Westchester County by zip code and unit size/number of bedrooms, which will help you determine if your available unit is within rent guidelines.
We encourage local rental property owners to review the information below to learn about participating in the Housing Choice Voucher Program. If you have a vacant apartment and would like to list it for free with our office, please complete the Available Apartment Listing Form below and fax it to us at (914) 381-7855.
