Huntington – Supervisor Chad A.
Lupinacci joined the Town of Huntington Community Development Agency on March 5
at Huntington Town Hall to kick off the affordable housing lottery drawing for
the four (4) bedroom, two-and-a-half (2.5) bathroom, and a two (2) car garage
single-family home currently available for sale at Harborfields Estates on
Pulaski Road in Greenlawn.
Huntington Community Development Agency (CDA) is in the process of verifying
whether the first individual whose name was drawn is income eligible. Once the
CDA verifies income eligibility the applicant has ten days to qualify for a
mortgage. If they do not qualify, CDA starts the verification process again with
the second name drawn, and so on.
“This is an exciting home-buying
process for one very lucky individual,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci. “The
application for this development preceded the Town’s affordable housing law’s
passage in 2017, and this is the second house the developer willingly made
available for the affordable housing lottery.”
Eligible individuals and families
who met the income and asset guidelines were encouraged to enter the lottery
for the opportunity to purchase one affordable single-family home, with four
(4) bedrooms and two-and-a-half (2.5) bathrooms, and a two (2) car garage,
currently available for sale at Harborfields Estates on Pulaski Road in
Greenlawn, New York, between January 15 and February 15.
608 applicants entered the lottery,
of which 525 were “preferred” applicants.
The first, or “preferred,” drawing
consistent of applicants who are residents of the Town of Huntington or who are
employed by a business or entity that maintains a verifiable physical location
within the Town of Huntington, or non-residents who have parents, children,
grandchildren or grandparents who are residents of the Town of Huntington. The
second drawing, for applicants who did not meet the above criteria, followed.
