Westchester Neighborhood Choice Program

The Westchester Neighborhood Choice Program

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision that invalidated the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) eviction moratorium, HUD is using every tool at its disposal to help safeguard the millions of Americans now in danger of losing their homes. View the HUD Evictions Guidance to learn more about the actions HUD is taking to help prevent evictions.

HUD programs and resources should be sought out by all Americans who are seeking assistance in avoiding eviction, relocating to new homes in the event an eviction moves forward, and fighting unfair evictions. HUD also has a responsibility to assist landlords, owners, Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), and all its stakeholders in weathering this public health crisis.

HUD and its partners are taking action to help prevent evictions, including:

  • Fighting unfair evictions
  • Providing legal assistance
  • Keeping people housed
  • Connecting people with rent relief
  • Providing tools to help PHAs, HUD-assisted landlords and tenants, and people experiencing homelessness

Eviction prevention resources, tools, and training for HUD’s grantees will continue to be posted to HUD Exchange as they are available. A selection of resources include:

If you’re a renter having trouble paying your rent, utilities, or other housing costs – or if you’re a landlord trying to stay afloat with tenants in this situation – help may be available through HUD’s rent relief resources.

The Westchester Neighborhood Choice Program is a mobility counseling program that seeks to help eligible families receiving Housing Choice Vouchers administered by CVR New York relocate from neighborhoods with high poverty rates, segregated minority populations and inferior schools to diverse neighborhoods with quality schools, also known of as 'opportunity areas'.

By providing prompt customer service to property owners through a single point of contact, WNCP will recruit and maintain landlords in Westchester's best communities as partners. WNCP will recruit and educate HCV holders on the benefits of moving to opportunity areas and help them locate, apply for, and move into apartments in good school districts.
