The Actors Fund operates several affordable housing residences across the country, and also offers resources to help you learn more about affordable housing opportunities and other housing-related issues you may encounter.

New York City has launched a NEW website for applying for affordable housing lotteries and rentals. If you had an account on the original NYC Housing Connect, your applicant profile will not be carried over to the new website and you will need to create a brand new profile to apply. Our Housing Connect 2.0 Tutorial will help applicants navigate the new system, understand changes to the process and show you how to set up a new profile. If you haven't already, we recommend that you participate in our Applying for Affordable Housing webinar as a prerequisite.

Additional online seminars include Apartment Hunting 101: Strategies for Finding Housing in NYC and Affordable Housing for Seniors.
