I tried to email you offline, but the message was returned so I wanted to try and rech you here:

Mind if I share the Sec. 8 contact info you made available in your post with my club members and supporters here on Long Island and the NYC area? I’m sure they would find it invaluable. Just wanted give credit where credit was due, and am happy to give you a plug, too, if you have one.

Thanks in advance,

Barbara Karnes

You might also want to look up the New York City Dept of Homeless Services. They have a program called the Emergency Assistance Rehousing Program, EARP, in which they offer bonuses to landlords who rent to the clients of the agency. Most of these people are living in city shelters. They are section 8 eligible and if you rent to them you will receive a section 8 rent check plus a one time bonus.
You can do a web search for the NYC Dept of Homeless Services. Their website has a wealth of information about the program an how it works or you can call the agency at (212) 361-6611/2.
Good Luck to you.
