Housing Lotteries

What is a housing lottery?
A lottery is created when there is expected to be more applicants than affordable units available in a development. Applicants that meet the income & asset eligibility requirements are then drawn randomly in a public forum and placed in order of drawing. This gives the applicant the opportunity to purchase a home at a substantially discounted rate.

Active Housing Lotteries: These are lotteries where applications are being accepted.

Closed Lotteries: These lotteries were conducted in the past; they have now been closed and can no longer be applied for.


First Come First Serve (FCFS)

First Come First Serve: The lottery has been held previously and it is now closed. However, applications are still being accepted on a first come first serve basis.
