One reason possibly for the 2 month to rent time may be the amount of work required to renovate the apartment to move-in condition for new tenants. It can vary from amount of vacancies ahead of this one, personnel to do the job, material needed, or host of other factors. I was a former employee of NYCHA before I moved to another City Agency. At times, there were good/ bad days when it came to setting up these apartments. There were times when I was stripping newly vacated apartments when prospective tenants would come & look at apts. Sometimes a apt could be turned over in 2 weeks. Some I remember wouldn't be done for 3-4 months. There are a variety of factors, some maintenance, some management. Usually after work is completed & the apt. is turned back over to mgmt. for final inspection, the tenant is brought in to look over the apt. & if accepted, go back to the office for lease processing where they explain your lease, rules, maintenance, and all else. Then you receive your keys once all parties are satisfied. At least, this is how I remembered it, but time has past since I've left & each development may work differently. Best of luck to you.

If anyone knows the answer please let me know. I already had the interview, and my application was sent to the housing project. I called the project to find out how much longer do I have to wait, but they tell me a computer does the selection. Right now we are living in a shelter, and I have to wait for a computer selects me. My question is; How long (in average) after your application is sent to a project does a person wait to get an apartment? Should I be looking for another apartment, because it will be a long wait? Or does anyone think I have a chance of being called soon?

If you reject a apartment or development, they put you back on the list and you might never get another chance, get your foot in the door, take what they show you and transfer to another development or apt later!

Jinetrobels was the vacancy a anticipated vacancy? Or a immediate anticipated vacancy? Does it matter? Who knows? That computer system is a mystery to me....it's suppose to give the needier familys more priority and since your still in the shelter system you should have top priority.....I heard anywhere from 3 months to 18 months....good luck though, I hope you start the new year off in a new apt, mabye we'll be neighbors.........by the way, I tried to put in for a transfer but my housing assistant told me there was a freeze on transfers and for new people getting apts. did anyone else hear this? I don't want to start rumors on here or discourage anyone..my housing assistant was probably blowing me off, the only reason I'm mentioning it is to find out if any other Nycha residents heard anything about this....

I've been livin in a shelter since Sept 2008! I applied for NYCHA around March 2009..got a quick response for an interview in May 2009. After my interview I got a letter sayn i was accepted in July 2009 and a list of facilities to choose from. I chose Parkside (which stated 1 Anticipated vacancy) in the bronx after weighing my options and returned the letter by early August. After no word for about a month I contacted housing in sept 2009 and was told that my application was sent to the facility i chose. I've been calln parkside once a month ever since and everytime i get the same ans.." it depends on how fast the people move out..u just have to wait, the computer chooses the names!".... I"m still waitin... I'm a single mom with a full time job but i can't afford $800 and $900 rent. I've tried calln the main office for housing and get the same crappy response..even the lady who works for housing told me that the computer system is just stupid.
I am listed as category 4 so I don"t know what preference I'm given. I tried apt hunting on my own but they don"t wanna take P.A. upfront cause they don't wanna wait to process the paperwork. Right now I'm just tryn to be patient. the shelter I'm in is very clean and quiet and i don't have to share my room with anyone. In the mean time i am just using the oppertunity to save so that when i get my own place i don't fall back in the shelter system again.
it's good that the government offers help for those who need it but the way they go about it is so unorganized.

Good luck
