i think NYCHA only considers you an emergency if you were a domestic violence situation or if you are homeless, not sure about overcrowding, but the rules are on the NYCHA website

NYCHA


seek and you shall find

Section 8 has certain levels of urgency, and btw section 8 is for regular apts, not NYCHA. If you look in the Daily News or NY Post online, or local papers, you should see listings that say Section 8/programs ok. I've also heard that even if they say working Section 8 only, they can't enforce this.

If you are a victim of domestic abuse, that is considered a top priority for housing; I assume the same goes for NyCHA. But Section 8 and NYCHA are two separate things. I'd go with Section 8 since then you're in a bldg with a lot of people who are not on Section 8 so it's not a ghetto of all housing pj residents, which can be dicey, esp if you have kids.

Section 8 is a federal program with some rules on the landlord's end; the apt must be clean, safe, and decent, well maintained (heat, hot water, repairs made, radiators working, etc) and it must have enough rooms to accommodate your children. If you have boys and girls, it would not be acceptable to have them share rooms, so I'm thinking you'd be able to get a large apt with enough room for your family. Again, if you're a victim of domestic abuse and/or single mom, the only tricky thing is getting a voucher because Section 8 closes periodically. If you have a voucher, you should have plenty of places to choose from in fairly decent (but not affluent) areas and buildings. Don't bother with brokers; you don't need them; just check the newspaper listings and you're good to go.

4 room = living room + kitchen + 2 bed rooms.
