Currently, the Town of Babylon is not accepting new applications for Section 8 housing. The demand for housing is high but the supply is low for those seeking Section 8 housing. As a result, the Town is currently working from an existing list of interested tenants and applicants are selected on a first come, first serve basis. Once the existing list is exhausted, the Town will open up the Section 8 housing program to new applicants.
All Section 8 properties are required to hold a Town of Babylon Rental Permit. Rental Permit applications can be obtained through the Department of Planning and Development's Rental Division.
To apply for a Rental Permit, you must fill out a Rental Permit Application and file it with the Rental Division.

Typically, a caseworker will be assigned to the issue. In some instances, a case will be assigned to the Landlord/Tenants Rights Court.
