Housing Authority requires that subsidized units be issued a Rental Permit
from the Town of Islip. you can apply for one, information is available on
The Town of Islip Website

Once and if a rental permit is issued, you can seek to lease your your
available unit privately and/or in our office. Our office listing is
provided to families on the program currently looking for a unit. There is
no pre-approval requirement, inspections and the supporting documentation are requested when a family submits a request to lease a unit. The HA does not provide a participating family for the unit, the families on the program choose to submit a request to lease a unit.
 

Information Links-from time to time there are regulations changes that are incorporated by reference and the info links here may not be updated due to delays in HUD distribution of documentation.
