Waitlist Forecast

Since this property may have HUD-funded Public Housing with subsidies that help pay tenants' rent, the property is likely to have a long waiting list. Housing authorities often open these waiting lists periodically. Important: Housing authorities don't always open housing waiting lists at a property-specific level or even allow applicants to choose at which property they can live. Many times, the housing authority will assign an applicant to a property without giving the applicant a choice.

Note: Affordable Housing Online has not confirmed the waiting list status directly with the property. This waiting list status forecast is based on our housing experts' knowledge of similar properties. You should always confirm this status directly with the property.

Dave's Thoughts On Lower West Side Homes

This property is funded through HUD’s Public Housing program. These properties are typically owned and managed by a Public Housing Authority. These properties tend to be much older, as no new public housing has been built in many years. Since the Federal budget has historically (and notoriously) underfunded public housing renovations for decades, these properties tend to have higher vacancies due to uninhabitable units or liveable units that are in poor condition. In addition, since all public housing properties offer rent subsidies, low-income residents only pay rent based on their incomes. For that reason, these properties tend to have longer waiting lists. Check our public housing waiting list data for more information. Since Lower West Side Homes participates in the Public Housing program and has a property based subsidy, if you have a Section 8 voucher, you would have to give up your voucher to move in.
