NYCHA is concerned about the safety of our residents and we offer an opportunity for residents who qualify as victims of domestic violence, intimidated victims, intimidated witnesses or child abuse victims to quickly and confidentially relocate from their present development, to another NYCHA development.

Residents who need an emergency transfer should contact their Development Management Office to complete an emergency transfer application. Residents will also meet with a Safe Horizon Case Manager or District Attorney liaison who will assist the resident in completing the application process.
