Special One-Time Assistance (SOTA)

The Special One-Time Assistance (SOTA) program provides one year’s full rent up-front for eligible Department of Homeless Services (DHS) clients to move within or outside New York City. You can find more information about SOTA here.

Note that SOTA is only a one-year subsidy and it can be very difficult to access assistance after you are placed – particularly if you are placed outside of NYC.  If you are concerned about the appropriateness of a possible SOTA placement for you or your family, you are welcome to visit the Coalition’s Crisis Intervention Program for assistance.
