Sota Program Participant Agreement

Starting in February 2020, new SOTA participants will be paid monthly to soTA owners. Under the terms of the SOTA landlord contract, the lessor is required to notify HRA within 5 working days of learning that the tenant has left the unit and to return all funds that go beyond the client`s residence. If the funds are not repaid, the city will follow the legal means of collection. Tenants must also notify the DSS immediately if they leave the device before the SOTA deadline expires. SOTA subscribers can call the SOTA hotline at 718-557-1373 if they: SOTA will only be made available to households whose DSS will realize that they will likely be able to pay the rent in the future as soon as they no longer have the SOTA subsidy to cover their rent. Households must have recurring income from employment, ISS or SSDs and rents that do not exceed 50% of current income. Tenants can call the SOTA emergency number if they are faced with a loss of income or a decrease in their income and need a transfer for services. If the client is at NEWC, they can contact the local Homebase program or the HRA Employment Centre for help. As a last resort, a person or family can again apply for housing when their 12-month participation in the SOTA program expires if there is no other viable housing. So far, only a very small number of individuals or families have done so.

The SOTA program pays one year`s rent for legitimate Clients of the Department of Homeless Services (DHS) to relocate to New York City, other new York county or another state, Puerto Rico or Washington, D.C.

Tenants can call the SOTA hotline and request the evacuation prevention services available in their commune. New York City tenants can be referred by HRA to a lawyer who can represent them in a residential yard. Under the terms of the landlord`s contract, in the event of eviction, the lessor is obliged to return funds that go beyond the tenant`s residence. If the funds are not repaid, the city will follow the legal means of collection. What is the One-Time Assistance Special Program (SOTA)? If a landlord tries to dislodge the tenant in the first year, how can the tenant get help? Yes, yes.

It is a legal form published by the New York City Department of Homeless Services, a government agency operating in New York.
