How to Apply for Co-op Housing

Most co-ops have a waiting list of people who would like to move into the co-op. These lists are usually divided into two categories:

people who can pay the full or "market" rent, and

people who will need a subsidy.

Subsidy (or rent supplement) is money that the government pays to help lower the rents for people with low incomes. Each co-op has an agreement with the government that outlines the amount of money available and who can qualify.
