Told you they were all gone. And they told my parents that there aren't going to be any openings. HRA controls those units so if someone doesn't qualify they will give the apartment to a different homeless family

Oh okay yeah that sucks. But anyone looking for one bedroom there's still plenty.

It is understandable that by the time your log number is reached there may be no units left, but at that point you should get a letter saying you have been placed on a waiting list, not a letter saying your application was selected and to come in for an interview.

Another forum member within this thread (don't recall the name), said Breaking Ground kept changing the date of the lease signing and in the end was told there were no units. It happened to me in a slightly different situation with them.

It seems to me Breaking Ground is not following the guidelines. I urge everyone that has had an experience that does not seem right to please contact HPD. They are actually quick at getting back to you and will have your file reviewed. Just make sure to keep all correspondence and be very detailed when you submit a message to the agency. Reference the project as well as your log number.

I added links to HPD in a previous comment on this thread. Even though you don't get a shot at getting a unit, at least, hopefully Breaking Ground will get their ***** together.

There have been too many complaints already.

@katy_perry,

Don't give up. What happened to you is very uncommon and it's not definitely how the process should work. Good luck!

P.S. My log number is not too high, 2X,XXX with CB, but I'm giving up on hearing from them.
I was in a process with Breaking Ground for VIA 57, same thing happened to me

Breaking Ground kept changing the date of the lease signing and in the end I was told there were no units. They ran my creidt and told me that my file is with the leasing company and I will be contacted soon to view an apartment ... blah blah

6 weeks. Also, for 2 bedrooms everyone is right. They are all gone and those units are permanently reserved always for homeless families.

Congratulations! That is actually a very fast turn around. Doesn't the whole process usually take 3 months+?

If the building isn't done then it can.

That's great. Is been about 4 weeks for me. So far they're great at breaking ground and very helpful. What was your log #? Did you have preference?
