No because unless you make a salary you can't get a lottery apartment. Those who get disability or s s I will live in Nycha since otherwise will be homeless. No landlord will rent an apartment for $700 the Ssi amount someone gets.

It's a foolish question. My first thought was to google "NYCHA vacancy rates".

First result... NYCHA - Statement on Vacancies 20150625.

Wednesday, June 24, 2015 — NYCHA has a record low vacancy rate of only 1 percent—the lowest it’s been in nearly 10 years.

3rd search result... https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/nycha/do.../factsheet.pdf
Page 3, under Applying for Public Housing (as of March 6, 2017)

2.6 percent turnover rate for public housing apartments in 2016. 0.7 percent vacancy rate of apartments available for occupancy
