"Don't get fancy with them. These are clerks who have been told by rote how to deal with each transaction." That's what you're dealing with -- I've never seen it expressed so perfectly.

And "usual" doesn't apply -- just read the thread of all the people waiting on Dean Street -- nothing usual about that situation. I'm not even in that lottery (I forgot to apply), but I find it fascinating reading. So I would relax. And I can't help but laugh at the thought of trying to explain an app to these people. You'll likely be fine. I think. Let us know what does happen.

Well, Dean Street had 4 large community board preferences so those will fill up very quickly. Anyway, I know what I have to do and I'll do it- no more random deposits. My bigger worry now is that the income limits will drop in 2017. They jumped up a lot this year and they have dropped once in 2014...

Though it's odd that they didn't comment on any of the documents I sent them in June and those had lots of misc. deposits.

I also have a CB preference at 10 Freedom Place which released log numbers on Monday. Even tho my log number is 12,000, they usually call the preference groups within a couple of months of getting log numbers.
I like the optimistic additude but i had cb and a way lower log in number than you for a building and it took them 2 years to the month of the lottery closing to call me. Even with a low log in number they only have like 10-20 apts in your income range. My guess is you won't have to worry about this by the time they call you.

What is the deal with StuyTown? Anything affordable? Their market rents are sky high.

Yeah, they had an affordable lottery in March, got my log number 150 out of 15,000 in April, they contacted me in May to submit documents, which I did in June and they did a credit check, but they have kept me waiting since then for a unit to open up. See this thread on the lottery: The STUY TOWN lottery starts today! (March 1)

Thank you wiivile.
Alas I got a "404 error" on the original ad.
As best you can remember what was the income range and rent for the 1 bedroom.
If you cannot remember, ignore the request.


Good Luck.

They're here, in the StuyTown thread: http://www.city-data.com/forum/45571223-post84.html

Note that the income ranges have since increased from the ad since those were based on 2015's AMI numbers.

I'm actually terrified that the income limits will decrease in 2017 which will completely ruin my chances of getting anything since I am near the upper limit...

wiivile,


Thank you so much for that pricing schedule. Now I understand what everyone is talking about.


since I am near the upper limit...


Are you the upper limit of the low end or the high end apartments?

What are they going to want to know about that deposit? Also, I also pay our family's cell phone plan some months and my parents pay their share by sending me money via PayPal. What kind of "documentation" would be required in cases like these? Point is, none of these things are income, but I'm not sure how to prove that it's not.

Ive been through and approved for the low income apt and they will ask about the deposits that have a name attached to it. Like so and so deposit this amount on this date. They will question why this person is giving you money. If it just says deposit they will not ask, because that can be you depositing the money
