Did you know that New York City is planning to build or preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing over the next ten years? This two-hour seminar for performing-arts and entertainment professionals provides an overview of government-subsidized housing in New York City, which is available for both low- and middle-income households. Complex information is broken down into simple, straightforward steps. While demand for these affordable units exceeds the supply, this seminar will help you avoid common mistakes and get organized and prepared to take advantage of opportunities to apply. The following questions will be addressed:
How do you find and apply for affordable housing?
What are the eligibility requirements? (Income, household size, credit, housing history, etc.)
How does a housing lottery work?
Can you get on a waiting list?
How do you document your income if it fluctuates year to year?
How can you best prepare yourself for an interview?
What are your options if you are denied?
