  1. THE ENTIRE “AFFORDABLE HOUSING” ISSUE IS BOGUS.

    IT EXCLUDES PEOPLE WITH LOW INCOMES FROM ENTERING THE LOTTERY. A PERSON EARNING $20,000 CAN EASILY PAY $700 A MONTH YET THESE PEOPLE ARE PRECLUDING FROM AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

  2. Affordable Housing and the City of New York were all in the plan to selectively hand pick their own preferred practice in placement. I recently came up on the lottery for 250 Ashland Place, Bklyn, a luxurious development in the heart of my childhood neighborhood. However, after 3 years in shelter and numerous reform efforts, the City met with another discriminatory practice against me that criminalize being homeless. To date, the City of New York, DHS and HPD along with the non-profits are engaged in the practice. Over the insistence, the City are enforcing the community preference policy by refusing to assist me in assuring placement in the unit at 250 Ashland Place, with a legitimate SEPS voucher, that I feel is behind the reason for it. A Criminal Justice major with aspirations, I am being denied an equal opportunity as I am sure are many others.
