ATTENTION: DHS and Advantage Program Updates
The Advantage Program was a NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) program that provided rental subsidies that helped clients transition from temporary, emergency shelter to self-sufficiency as quickly as possible, instilling responsibility through its firm linkage to employment opportunities. However, due to New York State's withdrawal of funding for the program, DHS ceased signing Advantage leases as of April 1, 2011. If you have questions or concerns about the Advantage program as a client or a landlord, please contact DHS at 212-607-6200.
