*Important COVID-19 Update*
To help us do everything we can to move New Yorkers into affordable housing as quickly as possible during this COVID-19 crisis, we have made several changes to the lottery process. Please see the What to Expect tab on our application guides webpage for more information and answers to frequently asked questions.

Use the NYC Housing Connect map or the accessible filter for current opportunities below to find affordable housing lotteries that are currently accepting applications. Filter current opportunities by borough and/or household size and income level to find the opportunities that you may be eligible for.

Note: Applicants with a housing voucher or rental subsidy may still qualify even if they make less than the minimum income limits listed in a lottery advertisement.
