HPD does not rent apartments. HPD works with real estate professionals and community sponsors who market apartments. We require that City-subsidized apartments be rented through an Open Lottery system to ensure fair and equitable distribution of housing to eligible applicants.
In order to participate in a lottery, you will have to contact the respective building managers, community sponsors and/or real estate professionals directly to fill out an application and enter it in an apartment lottery. There are no brokers' fees and no application fees.
