Affordable Housing Lottery Opens in Bronx: Rentals as Low as a Few Hundred Dollars

A lottery for affordable apartments in a Bronx building will start soon, city officials said. Some flats will cost as little as a few hundred dollars a month.

Starhill Phase 1, which is at 1600 Grand Ave. in Morris Heights, will be the site of the affordable housing draw.

The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development says that Starhill Phase 1 will have more than 300 homes for people with very low to low incomes. One- and two-bedroom flats will be in the building.

Officials at the Department of Housing Preservation and Development said that studio apartments can be rented for as little as a few hundred dollars a month, and two-bedroom apartments are also very cheap for low-income families.

The NYC Housing Connect website will likely open in a few weeks with drawing forms for the Starhill Phase 1 project. A precise date has not yet been set.

People can find and apply for affordable homes in New York City through NYC homes Connect, an online platform. On the website, there are 32 affordable home lotteries going on right now.

Reynolds said, “We always have new lotteries going live on Housing Connect.”

The Department of Housing Preservation and Development told PIX11 last Friday on the “Monica Makes it Happen Show” that the Starhill Phase 1 listing was going to happen.

On Friday’s show, hip hop artist Dres, Linda Hoffman (president of the New York Foundation for Senior Citizens), Victoria Schneps (publisher and owner of Schneps Media), and housing heroes who are giving $1 million to groups helping their communities grow were also guests.
