How long was the process for you when they submitted your documents to third party approval?

Yeah, there is a severe lack of 70-100% AMI units out there. I think it's the different tax incentives. There are several "low-income" programs and then the 421-a program that is "moderate income" at 130-165% but a lot get's lost in the middle. Hopefully you can find something, good luck!

I don't get it. I apply to every single lottery I qualify for, and some I don't. I never get a low number. I'm at 60 ami and always have been.

Nothing stops you from winning another apartment lotteries are all separate even if it’s the same company

Apply for buildings in your neighborhood then you’ll have CB preference and you’ll have a better chance at winning one.

I’m also 130% probably that’s why I’m contacted for most buildings.

I am in the process of being approved for a new lotto building and once approved, will move out of my current lotto building I've lived in for about 3 years.

You might think this is unfair while there are people trying to win their first lotto apartment, but I'm actually thrilled someone who needs it will be able to move into my 60% AMI unit that no longer meets my needs and I can move in to a 130% AMI unit that does, and is actually a "fair" price for my new income.
I feel like for higher AMIs they mover faster and you have more chances to win.
