Affordable housing applications are selected for review through a lottery process. If your number comes up in the lottery and your application appears to qualify, you will be invited to make an appointment to confirm your eligibility. That appointment is to review the documents that support the information on your application.
Appointments are usually scheduled from two to ten months after the application deadline. You will be asked to bring in documents about who will be living with you, how much money everyone you will be living with makes, your current apartment, and other information.
We help you prepare for the appointment, if your number comes up in the lottery. We let you know the documents you may need to bring and offers tips on how to find and prepare the documents you need.
Practice shows that not every of the hundreds of submitted applications is filled in and sent correctly. Many participants make elementary and at the same time fateful mistakes, because of which, as a result, they are deprived of the opportunity to obtain a coveted apartment.
Our Company knows secrets, without respect of which it will be difficult for you to get into the final pool.
For example, if you have already applied online, do not send it via email, and vice versa, as you will be disqualified immediately. In case when two family members apply to participate in the same lottery, that means a red light. In addition, each lottery has priorities: for example, some focus on the elderly, others allocate a certain number of apartments for people with disabilities. A lottery participant must be provided with an adequate documentation and a credit history in order to confirm the level of income. We know what to do if you get your salary in cash or have a temporary job. There are many other nuances.
At the same time, we can prepare applications for you in several housing complexes. Mitchell-Lama apartments are sold or rented on the basis of the priority lists that are maintained for each complex. Many priority lists of Mitchell-Lama are closed since there are already enough applicants who want to occupy apartments that will be vacated in the foreseeable future. We monitor the current information on the availability of housing in a particular complex of our database, which is updated daily.
Periodically, priority lists for these residential complexes open, and new applicants can be put on them according to the lottery principle.
When putting on the priority lists for Mitchell-Lama complexes resumes, relevant announcements are published.

If you are invited to an interview, our specialists will help you to prepare properly, taking with you copies of all documents (ID, birth certificate, payment receipts, tax return confirmations, etc.). Preparation for the interview is extremely important. Being summoned is a big step forward, but it is by no means a guarantee that the apartment is already yours.
If the interview is successful, and we apply all our experience and knowledge to such outcome, you will soon receive a long-awaited housing, or you will be put on the waiting list, which means that every 6 months you will need to let us know if you still need an apartment.
