You can begin by contacting your local PHA office--Public Housing Authority--regarding their procedures, any paperwork needed, any other information needed, etc.- a knowledgeable case worker can help you get started---see links for additional information.

I don't believe that Section 8 vouchers can be used to buy property in NY, although they can in other states. Check with your benefits co-ordinator.

Hi Lucky, Check with your Realtors in the area in which you want to buy in. They should know and be able to help you.

All the Best
