One of the first and most important steps a family faces when looking for housing is the credit checks performed by landlords as part of their application and screening process. To ensure families are well prepared to compete for the limited number of affordable housing units in New York City, Strycker’s Bay offers Income Support & Financial Literacy through a developing relationship with TD Bank. Credit Counseling and Debt Consolidation options will be made available to clients applying to privately run housing. The Housing Counselor advises housing applicants on the steps to building a good credit report to gain acceptance and approval of new affordable housing opportunities.
