The affordable housing lottery launched yesterday, July 10, for two new rental units available at 452 Lafayette Avenue (at Franklin Avenue) on the border of Clinton Hill and Bed-Stuy.
The newly constructed five-story building is smoke-free and offers a roof terrace and a laundry room. The two affordable units include one one-bedroom at $947/month, and one two-bedroom at $1,072/month.
To qualify for the one-bedroom apartment, the annual household income requirement is $32,469 to $40,080 annually for a single person and $32,469 to $45,840 for a couple.
The annual household income requirement for the two-bedroom unit is $36,755 to $45,840 for two people; a maximum of $51,540 for three people; and a maximum annual income of $57,240 for four people.
Preference will be given to residents of Brooklyn Community Board 3 (which includes Bedford-Stuyvesant, Stuyvesant Heights, and Ocean Hill). Five percent preference will be given to municipal employees.
Five percent of the affordable units are set aside for applicants who are mobility-disabled and two percent for vision- or hearing-disabled applicants.
