An affordable housing lottery has opened up for 32 units in six buildings in Harlem, with openings for people making a wide range of income.
The buildings are spread over a large area from just above Central Park at 112th Street, to 139th Street. The addresses are 118 West 139th Street, 123 West 112th Street, 30 West 132nd Street, 281 West 118th Street, 120 West 139th Street, and 122 West 139th Street. The group of buildings is known as the Uptown 6.
The units are spread throughout the buildings, and eligibility depends on the size of your household and your income. They are for people making up to 80% of the area median income. Depending on size, households making from $48,480 to $120,080 can apply. There are studios and apartments with multiple bedrooms — two four-bedroom apartments will rent for $2,230 a month.
The city has revamped its housing application process, making it easier for people to apply to multiple projects. Check out the site to apply here.
