Based on the liberal housing rules of NYC, it wouldn't be surprising.
900 bucks a month, and you pay 1/3 of that if salary allows. if you don't work. Don't worry about it. Section 8 will provide the entire cost. And the great thing is that it's renewable for life so there is never an incentive to leave the program. Hopefully, New York's city council will approve this for you, if they haven't done so already.

Section vouchers are strictly for subsidized rental assistance payment and does not qualify for home purchase in NYC or any other city. Please consult with your Section 8 case worker for clarification on this matter. However, if you need further assistance locating an apartment that accept section vouchers in NYC , I will be happy to offer my services.
