The application period will be open for one month (March 20 – April 24, 2018)
After all the applications are in, there will be two lotteries in which applicants are selected by an electronic random number selector. Each application submitted has a corresponding “Case Number” when submitted, which will be entered into the random number generator.
Low income lottery: pre-selection from only low-income applicant pool. This ensures that that a percentage of funds are pre-allocated to low income residents, and increases chances for low income residents to be selected
Standard lottery: selection from remaining applicant pool (low income applicants not already selected included)
The exact number of applicants selected for each lottery will be dependent on the number of low-income applications received. The City will select up to 30 of the 150 applicants from the low income lottery.
