A new affordable housing lottery has opened for eight units in a recently-constructed building in Woodside—where rental prices start at $1,750 a month.

The units are located in a nine-story, 74-unit building at 46-02 70th St. — in a building that fronts Queens Boulevard.

The affordable units are for those who make up to 130 percent of the area median income (AMI).

Two studio apartments are available at $1,750 a month to households of one to three people who make between $60,000 and $139,620 combined annually.

Six two-bedroom units are available at $2,400 a month to households of two to five people who make between $82,286 and $167,570 combined annually.

A breakdown of the full income requirements is below.

Tenants are responsible for paying the electricity — including heat — and gas bills in addition to rent.

The building features a shared laundry room, covered parking spots and bike storage.

The deadline to apply is June 28, 2021. Mailed applications must be postmarked by that date.

Those eligible can apply to the housing lottery online here.

To request an application by mail, send a self-addressed envelope to J&J Tower Apartments – Units Still Available c/o Reside New York 349 Keap St., Brooklyn, NY 11211.

The building owner will receive a tax break for participating in the affordable housing lottery.

What kind of scam is going on here where affordability is being determined by incomes that are over 100%. People who make over the limit don’t need the government to assist them to find housing.
