I also applied and supplied my documents but I have not been invited to view any apartments. I am also waiting patiently! However, I do not know what the timeline is at all.

I have a low 18XX log number and interviewed in August.

August they told me there was only one apartment available. Glad to know I'm not alone in my anxiety. So stressful to wait and wait and not know what is going on. I think if you qualify we are on the list when more apartments come up.

I can report that both my retirement account and the IRS contacted me saying that people requested information. My child's school also contacted me because the management company faxed a form to my child's school to confirm that my child was enrolled. So I guess they are doing something. Has anyone else had anything like that happen?

The apartment is actually more expensive than my current apartment, but it would future proof us against rent increases in our neighborhood AND it has awesome schools.

Has anyone found any other Manhattan lotteries in the same range? (i.e. 165% AMI?)

Would love to see if either of you get the apartment and will report back on any news on my end. I literally look at the building online every day and it kills me to be obsessed. Embarrassed to say I've even drawn out the floorplans I've found on Streeteasy and decorated.

Good luck!

I applied for the heck of it; I received an email that my application had been placed on the waiting list and the log number (19XX). Nothing since then. The apartment would be a good amount more than what we pay now and probably a lot smaller. As posted above, we’re mostly interested in the rent-stabilized part and the good schools. We actually really like our current apartment and neighborhood, but with kids we’d like the stability and maybe the chance to live in a totally different neighborhood.

We are also usually 165% and I’ve actually been contacted to interview for quite a few (Manhattan—mostly Harlem lotteries, Stuy Town, different places in Brooklyn). At this income range the rent usually isn’t as affordable (meaning the usual “40 Times the Rent” rule for income is higher than the max income they actually allow). I assume this is probably why less people at this range apply and why you have a greater chance of being contacted. Good luck!

LMAO!! I have furniture picked out for my floor plan that ive marked up as well. You are not alone!

I have not received any calls from banks/schools to verify any of my documents. I did however, submit a letter from my sons school and provide copies of EVERYTHING. Even letters they may not have specifically have asked for. Did you also submit a letter from the school or would that have been the first time they verified it.

Also, I have noticed about 1-2 apartments open up at this address for regular rent (nothing was available for the last 2-3 months) . Not sure if people are starting to move out or if its a coincidence.

If there was a way to upload photos I’d share my floor plan!

I did provide school documents at the interview, and then two weeks ago my school emailed me saying they had received a fax from Related asking the school to fill out a form and verifying enrollment.

just an fyi...I called the leasing agent and inquired about the size of the units. The units on StreetEasy are the market rate units. Apparently the affordable housing units are much smaller. I also have a low log number. If I am called and I view units, I will try to take pictures and upload them here if we are allowed to post pics on this site.

That's a bummer to hear! I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but when the whole idea of $2,800 being "affordable" is already a joke... it is just a lot.

Hello everyone -

Received the following email from Related. I reached out to them but haven't heard back. I already had my interview and documents. I assume this means the available apartments went to someone else and back on the list. But who knows!

-----------------------------------------------------

Dear Applicant:

We are in receipt of your application for housing for the above-captioned property.

Please be advised that your application has been placed on the waiting list for this property. As apartments become available, we will interview the next eligible applicant on the waiting list. When your application number is reached, we will contact you at the address recorded on your application to schedule an appointment for your initial interview.

Please note that the availability of affordable apartments is limited.

We can confirm that your application is on the waiting list, but we can not provide any additional information regarding the status of your application. As a reminder, modifications to your household circumstances or the change of annual income guidelines may also impact the eligibility of your household.

It is your responsibility to provide written confirmation if there is any change or modification to your household or if there is a change of address. Please make sure to include your application number and the property name in your letter. All correspondence must be sent to the following address:
