Where to Find Affordable Housing in NYC

A list of New York City's affordable housing lotteries.

View as Map

Affordable apartments aren't easy to come by in New York City, but one vital source of affordable housing is NYC Housing Connect—the city's one-stop-shop for available, affordable units.

The lottery website is updated regularly with new listings. Some apartments are found in entirely below-market-rate buildings, while others are located in luxury developments. Here, we've compiled all of the lotteries that are currently open to New Yorkers.

But, of course, there are caveats. Applicants must make a certain percentage of the area median income (AMI), and as demand for affordable housing continues to climb, so too has the number of applicants. Visit our guide to help you navigate the application process.

But hey, it's still worth a shot. We'll update this map periodically. Tip us if you see a development that hasn't made it onto the lottery’s list yet.

Map last updated on July 15, 2020. Lotteries are listed geographically, beginning in Manhattan, then the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island.
