    Please send an application,thank you.

  3. Where can interested applicants get an application? Your ads are not including where or how to apply. Do you want people to apply or not?

    • Nikolai Fedak | March 29, 2021 at 2:13 pm | Reply

      These are not ads, they are news stories.

      • NF — why dont you kust put a notice in the comment creation box telling people this is not a website to request applications for housing. You prevent these comment sections from filling up with what is often gramatically incomprehensible requests by confused people who think they are genuinely visiting a real estate site that is marketing developments not just nerding out on them with a smallish group of fellow nerds. Genuine question. And it seems it would save a lot of people of both kinds a bit of frustration. I think the answer though may have to do with ad revenue for this site and not wanting to limit the amount of yimby visitors by telling them this website is not what they think it is. Am I close? Love the site BTW. This is just “constructive” critisim.

    You kidding me bro that’s nuts.2,000 2,100 rent its insane again i’m on ssi i’m sleeping on the floor of my family members mobile home in pennsylvania. All my stuff is in my vehicle i’m practically homeless. Lucky i have family members that live in pennsylvania,I would of been in much worst predicament.Its so funny you people using that title affordable housing.Theres nothing affordable about those units its a complete bluff excuse my french.Theres thousands of homeless people around the world that need housing that can’t get buy, because they can not afford it.Even families that are getting evicted do to lack of finances or job loss its not funny. People like us see the harsh reality,and its hitting us right in our faces.Everyday i pray that it gets better.I don’t want to go back to jail trust me it could happen.I was living in a place in pennsylvania for 3 years it was hell. The guy turned out to be a two face a racist, ignorant, sarcastic and egotistic.Drinking, smoking pot, abusing pills, slamming doors, blasting his music screaming and saying racist offensive stuff drunk at 1 2 3 allot of times at 4 o’clock in the morning i couldn’t sleep it was pure hell i didn’t know what to do i was loosing my mind.So therefore you people get me more angry when you talk about housing lottery. Not only that my drivers license is revoked for ever i’m more upset at this weird situation. Everyday i look on craigslist, zillow for a studio nothing zilch.Come on know from women, jobs,and my living quarters. I always had bad luck i feel i been cursed.To top it all of my drivers license i feel i’m stuck in the middle of the ocean just floating surrounded by sharks, without a boat or paddles.You people need to make those studios affordable for low income people and for those families that are in need and for the homeless, stop discriminating we humans.Its all about equality.

    • I’m very Interested But Don’t have Section8 To help me pay for the rent,I Comfort myself with a Studio have SSI of only $800.00. Monthly
      If you can help me with anything I truly would Appreciated Like I think I Need Affordable Housing I’m Disabled With Multiple Sclerosis ( MS ) And have a mental Issue ( Panic Attacks ).

    • Man, I feel you. Affordable Housing is a Scam these days, It is sad that Affordable Housing is only for People who make $80k and above. Housing should be for all regardless of Income, Employment, Race, Ethnicity, Age, Marriage and etc. Housing is a Human Right NOT a Privilege.

      look at countries like Finland how they eradicated homelessness by providing Housing as a Human Right regardless of Income and Employment.

    • Also i forgot to said that, i find it sad that our worth in life is measured by our possessions rather than what we contribute to the world, if people had the basics, they could do more with their talent even if that didn’t earn money, but actually helped the world, people are stuck in dead end jobs just to make a living, how does that help society?

  9. It states you have to go to the nyc housing connect website and fill out application. You will then be picked out of thousands of applicants (lottery). Hope that helps and goodluck!
