The Department of Housing Preservation and Development on Wednesday released an interactive map of housing lotteries currently accepting applications. Users can click icons displayed on the NYC Housing Connect Map for more information on a lottery, including required income levels, household size and the application deadline. Earlier this week, the department launched a map that displays all of the affordable housing units, buildings and projects which count towards Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Housing New York 2.0 plan.

The map allows users to search by borough, household size or income level. To search by income level, it categorizes them by low, extremely low, very low, moderate, and middle–so it’s helpful to know which level you fall into. To understand which level your household might belong, check 6sqft’s guide to the city’s affordable housing.

Both maps aim to bring more transparency to the affordable housing process as well as the mayor’s plan to create or preserve 300,000 affordable homes by 2026. If interested in applying for a lottery, be sure to check the NYC Housing Connect map regularly as new lotteries open up almost daily.
