Housing Support Program for Mathematics, Science and Special Education Teachers

The Housing Support Program is aimed at attracting experienced, certified talent in critical nationwide shortage areas-specifically, math, science and special education at the secondary levels-to teach in New York City. Fully certified teachers in these shortage areas who have taught a minimum of two years in the shortage area - either in their previous careers or currently - will be eligible to participate. All applicants must pass a rigorous selection process. Successful applicants will receive housing support of approximately $15,000 over two years in return for a three-year service commitment to teach in a high need school.
