Current Housing Lotteries

 HPD does not rent apartments. We work with real estate professionals and community sponsors who market apartments. We require that 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 housing lotteries, you will have to contact 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.

If you would like to receive an e-mail when the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development has updated its web content concerning apartment and home listings for City-sponsored housing in the five boroughs, please register for this feature at www.nyc.gov/hpd

The full descriptions of the apartments listed below are available in .PDF format. To download these descriptions, you will need the latest copy of the Adobe Acrobat Reader. This program can be downloaded for free from this link: "Acrobat and the Web."

FRAUD ALERT: DO NOT PAY ANY MONEY OR FEE AT ANY TIME TO ANYONE FOR AN APPLICATION TO ANY HPD SPONSORED HOUSING PROJECT. IF YOU SEE AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR AN HPD AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECT THAT IS NOT POSTED ON THIS WEB SITE REPORT IT TO 311 IMMEDIATELY.

HDC's Lists of Developments

The NYC Housing Development Corporation (HDC) has several programs, each with different income requirements. You may be eligible for one or more programs, depending on your income and family size. Check the guidelines for each program first, and then consult the following lists of buildings that are organized by income levels. You should carefully read the income guidelines for all the programs to determine your eligibility, since you may fall within different categories for different programs.

In addition, you may visit NYC Housing Connect (please link) to apply for an apartment, or you may contact the Managing Agent for each building noted in the advertisement to determine if they are accepting applications at this time.
