Default mobility impaired interviews

Hi,

I applied and am mobility impaired. I'm concerned because I haven't received any notification for an interview yet. Maybe my application wasn't opened? I'm unclear if they had to open all of them and then take the mobility impaired individuals or what.

Thank you jhartigan and meemsone for providing the percentages. Much appreciated!

As for sydney44's question about why he wasn't called, it could be because they already picked enough mobility people for the first round of interviews. If some of those applicants don't pan out for any reason (not meeting the income restrictions, not enough money for down payment, inability to secure a mortgage), then they'll continue to go down the list of mobility applicants and pick more.

So, my thoughts - they probably did open your application, but they haven't gotten to it yet. Will they get to it? I guess that depends on where in the list it is and if some of the current batch of mobility applicants don't pan out.

Default Lottery Process Outlined

Dear all:

I truly wish that someone from HPD could answer my my concerns regarding the lottery process.

Note that according to earlier application instructions, "Applications will be randomly drawn and opened in a lottery process monitored by HPD. Depending on the volume of applications received, it may not be possible for all of the applications to be opened." given all the concerns expressed so far, can anyone analyze and interpret this statement? Thanks
Hello posters,

I was involved in the La Celia Lottery. Take a look at this document from HDC which explicitly outlines how the lottery process works.

http://www.nyc.gov/html/hpd/download...Guidelines.pdf

Page 17 begins to outline the lottery process.

Good luck to all! You will not regret trying.

Bgal,

What was your experience with the process?

Did you purchase an apartment? If so, any regrets?

Just Trolling!

in that order. I'm a municipal worker. Hopefully not that many municipal workers applied. But either way I wish everyone luck!
Im wondering if they will find 25% of Hurricane Sandy applicants. Maybe some of that alotment will go to nonpreferred.

Yes I'm pretty sure they will. And actually sandy is before municipal workers. You figure the amount of people that applied I'm sure 25 were affected by sandy. They definately have better odds than the non preferred. Good luck to everyone waiting on the list.

Great experience. Trust that Mike Reed will do you right. Look at the fine print if you get chosen to look at an offering plan. You really need to be able to park it in NYC for a while for it to make it a good investment because of the restrictions on the resale are strict. The Park Clinton is under a completely different government program than La Celia. It is my understanding that the restrictions on resale are different than ours. I found info online that actually gave the prices of the apartments and the specifics on the resale. (I googled the actual address. Do some digging, hopefully you can still find it)

I have a beautiful new home and absolutely NO regrets.
