In New York City, 52.4 percent of people with disabilities spend more than one-third of their income on rent compared with 42.1 percent of their non-disabled peers. 
CIDNY provides referrals, assistance, and resources for people with disabilities looking for affordable and accessible housing. We are not a housing provider, but help people learn how to search for housing and housing subsidies so that they understand and can use online and other resources. We also help people with disabilities to avoid eviction. To get help, call us at 212-674-2300 or email info@cidny.org and include your name and a phone number where we can reach you.
We host housing workshops at various times. Subscribe to our newsletter/email list for more information.
For seniors and people with disabilities who are looking to transition from nursing homes or other long-term care facilities back into the community, there are additional resources available here.
