The Poughkeepsie Housing Authority administers 87 Section 8 Vouchers . Eligible families are

issued a voucher and must locate a unit to rent. As long as certain criteria are met regarding the

unit, the family can rent the unit and the authority will provide rental assistance. The PHA"s

jurisdiction is the City of Poughkeepsie.

Leaving the Poughkeepsie Housing Authority with Section 8 assistance is called Portability. If

you are a current voucher holder, and interested in leaving the PHA’s jurisdiction, please contact

our office for more information.
