The US Department of Housing and Urban Development contracts with the Town of Mamaroneck annually to provide funding to administer 647 Housing Choice Vouchers. Housing Choice Vouchers allow recipients to live in any market rate apartment, where the tenant pays approximately 30% of their income toward rent, and the voucher pays the remaining rent directly to the landlord.
The Town of Mamaroneck also handles the eligibility determination and ongoing income certification for eight 1-bedroom and two 2-bedroom Workforce Housing rentals at The Cambium, 13 units at Hommocks Park Apartments which are set aside for Housing Choice Voucher holders, and other affordable housing units in the Village of Mamaroneck.
The Community Service Office also helps coordinate annual holiday gift‐giving projects, in partnership with the American Legion Post 90, local schools, and other community groups for individuals and families in need. Families selected are asked to submit a "wish list" to Community Services and an anonymous list is then shared with the congregants of several religious organizations and employees of the Town of Mamaroneck who participate in the effort by purchasing, wrapping, and donating new clothing, toys, gift cards, and gift baskets for local families and senior citizens to ensure these families enjoy a festive holiday season.
