Thank you for your interest in the affordable housing program for 5241 and 5203 Center Blvd. The lottery is now closed. Please see below for more information on next steps and what to expect.
Applicant outreach and eligibility determination is done in log number order. These numbers are generated randomly by the system, meaning the date you applied does not determine your place in the log.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, HPD has made several changes to the lottery process including a faster appeal timeline, and relaxed document requirements. This means it’s even more important for applicants to be prepared. Here are some steps you can take:
• Check your current lease: Carefully check what your current lease says about moving before the lease is over. If you’re offered an apartment, you may need to move quickly.
• Collect and copy supporting documents: If your log number comes up and your application appears to qualify, you will be invited to make an appointment to confirm your eligibility. The appointment is to review the documents that support the information on your application. This may include birth certificates, photo IDs, pay stubs, tax returns, and more.
• For detailed information on what documents you may need and how to prepare them, click, download and refer here: NYC Housing Connect Checklists & Resources Guide
It can take anywhere from 2 to 10 months to hear back about your application. Sometimes you might not hear back even if you qualify, simply due to how far down the lottery log you are and the number of available apartments.
What if I never hear back?
Due to the volume of applicants, you may not hear back if your log number is not reached for processing.
* Subject to a monthly community fee
Market Rate apartments are available in 5241 & 5203 Center Blvd. See Availabilities >>

Your new home is steps away from pedestrian bridges and bike pathways, a kayak launch, exercise and picnic terraces, a 30 foot high cantilevered look-out platform offering views of the Manhattan skyline and East River, new playgrounds, dog runs, volleyball and basketball courts, and a growing collection of Public Art.
