  7. Are there any more affordable apartments for salary range $38k-48k?

  8. All I need a Low income. Multiple Sclerosis female only have SSI
    And would like to get in there

  9. These are not affordable apartments at this rate homelessness is going to soar. Or are these apartments for the people who can afford them please do not call them affordable

  10. AMI calculations for affordable housing is such a scam. How is $2,000 per month affordable for someone with a gross income of $69,000?

    Meanwhile congress dont want to release $1,200 to its own people…. from their own taxes.

    We truly do live in a dystopia.

    • Affordable housing ??lmfao

      • It’s really sad what this place is turning to the reality is I’m preparing for retirement and scared as far as housing is concern I’ve tried to stabilized my self where finance is concern don’t wanna be hand to mouth the biggest problem is rent. I pay 1,600 monthly in order keep a roof over my head can’t afford that. When I retire. So I decided to try ny housing waste of time applied to like about 50 with I make too much or too little not catered for the low income now that the covid is back only god know where things will be change of government people loosing g their job. I do have a job and still it’s a struggle every day my prayer goes up for the housing situation to change where we can all benefit only by gods grace

    • I agree with you! affordable? Not for the people who live in that neighborhood

  11. Way back Housing used to be for people with low income why they call it now housing it’s look like a private house located in Mill basin georgetown something like that

  16. Interested in Apartments

  17. These apts as u state r affordable housing. With these monthly rents should not be consider AFFORDABLE HOUSING.( not for many people in need in the five boroughs of NYC.

    • People is out here making 15 dollars an hour. How is this affordable for them? Is utilities included, food etc…. I make 25 and can’t afford this after taxes, medical and everything else. These people are wicked.

  18. How can I get the application?

  27. How can i get an application…thank you

    • For anyone that wants to apply to this housing lottery, you have to go “NY Housing Connect” website as stated in this article. YIMBY doesn’t manage this, they are just reporting it.

  28. Who is this affordable for exactly ?

  29. I totally agree this is not affordable housing. It’s ashame that these developers get good tax breaks just for so called allocating a number of units for so called low income families. The rich get richer. Pure greed is what it is. SMDH?

    • This is affordable housing? For WHO? SMH…in Flatbush the average family may make $55,000 and that’s stretching it. These housing laws must change to stop building these so called affordable housing. A typical family will have to make at least $68,000 to get the apartment and spend $26,400 of that to live in it…New York and it’s landlord greed will soon pay the price

    • You said it!!! The rich are getting richer and the low income get to be homeless!!! Its so sad. But true..

  30. hello I need to know about the application where where I had to sign will application and I’m a low income for SSI I want to know a qualifying thank you

  31. This is not affordable housing. This is ripoff housing . And genotype will begin who has money and who don’t have money. Go to a housing project if that’s the case.

    Marva, right below there is an article for senior housing, with income levels starting at $0. Keep looking for similar programs/lotteries on the HPD
    You can also call 311
    Also, if you go into a shelter they have housing specialists that may be able to direct you some city housing programs.
    Lastly, perhaps is time to high tail it out of here. It’s getting too much, to hard to live here

  36. Samore Pierre-Louis | December 7, 2020 at 10:46 pm | Reply

    Please send an application

  37. This is a joke you call those numbers affordable, the affordable apartments that are listed will be filled with people that don’t need affordable housing. It’s just a way to keep people that need affordable housing out, because those numbers are not affordable to most people in Brooklyn. A JOKE!!!

  38. Affordable to whom?

  39. A city employee that needs one please.

  42. These are not affordable apartments. Those prices are standard rental prices for the space you’re getting. In fact, you’re much better off getting an apartment from a private home owner as it may cost you less. ?

  43. Im looking for a two bedroom

  44. I am trying to get into something like this how do I get the application.
