Want to know more about New York City’s affordable housing lottery process?

Urban Upbound, a Long Island City-based non-profit, will be hosting a webinar Thursday about how the lottery process works. The online event will go from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The webinar, which is being held as the deadline to enter TF Cornerstone’s Hunters Point South affordable housing lottery approaches, will provide attendees with the tools and know-how to determine their eligibility and outline the application process.

Experts from from the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development will provide a walkthrough on the application website and will be available to answer questions. They will also discuss Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity rights of tenants and prospective home buyers.

TF Cornerstone will join the webinar to highlight the affordable housing opportunities at 5241 Center Boulevard, one of two buildings TFC is building at Hunters Point South.

The company’s development at Hunters Point South will bring 1,194 new residential units across two sibling buildings, with a mix of studios, one, and two-bedroom apartments.

Sixty percent of the apartments will be permanently affordable to low, moderate, and middle-income residents, with 100 apartments set aside for low-income seniors. The application deadline is Nov. 23.

Half of the affordable units are set aside for the local community within Queens Community Board 2.

Residents will have access to amenities in both buildings, including a multitude of expansive outdoor spaces, BBQ grills, club room and lounge, children’s playroom, fitness center, yoga room, laundry facilities, and HomeWork, TF Cornerstone’s signature resident-exclusive co-working space.

The webinar will be held via Zoom and people can register for this free workshop here
