How Can You Help?
The National Low Income Housing Coalition is providing this data as a public service. NLIHC will continue to update the database. The accuracy of the data is based on information provided by the programs' administrators and user submissions.
HomeBASE is a neighborhood based program in New York City. The city works with community non-profits to provide services to households facing homelessness. Households receive services based on a scoring system that measures risk for homelessness. Households can receive emergency rental assistance, access to job training, and landlord-mediation services. Financial assistance is not guaranteed, and most assistance is not financial in nature. About 11,000 households are served by the program each year.
The HomeBASE program funding is derived from federal TANF funds, federal ESG funds, and city funds. The program budget is approximately $23 million, and New York City contributes $5 million each year towards the program.
