The housing lottery is now open for Nehemiah Spring Creek, two separate residential developments in East New York, Brooklyn. Developed by Nehemiah Housing Development Fund Company, a non-profit housing affiliate for East Brooklyn Congregations in partnership with Monadnock Development, the buildings in this phase yield a total 214 rentals in a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are the 214 apartments for residents with an eligible income between $18,618 to $126,900, ranging from 30 to 90 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI). The structures are part of a 45-acre development plan that brings a mix of retail, affordable apartment rentals, and townhouse home ownership.
