CUFFH offers year-round affordable housing workshops where community members receive an introduction to our work and get training and assistance to navigate New York City's affordable housing lottery application process. Residents receive expert, step-by-step advice on what to expect through the application process, including a review of the application and other required documents;
information on financial empowerment and managing credit and debt portfolios; and additional support through the selection and interview process. In addition to larger workshops, CUFFH also provides One-on-One Application Assistance including information and training on the necessary interview skills and financial literacy needed to obtain an affordable housing unit.*

*CUFFH does not rent apartments. CUFFH is an HPD Housing Ambassador and works with real estate professionals and community sponsors who market available apartments. The City requires that City-subsidized apartments be rented through an Open Lottery system to ensure fair and equitable distribution of housing to eligible applicants. There are no brokers’ fees and no application fees.
