Winners are emerging in Boston’s hot affordable housing lottery scene and luck is a cool operator.

Winners are emerging in affordable housing lottery.

Draw a Black line around the Jackson Square Jamaica Plain area to a part of the South End, and from there into Uphams Corner and you would have encircled more than 100 reduced rent new apartments being offered to people seeking affordable housing income restricted rents  in Boston recently.

The demand for a shaved rent or mortgage deal is constant. It took a while for the City of Boston to kick into fairly high gear getting the word out about them. They probably have over 100,000 people on an email list getting the clicks when there is something to announce. We told you about their web site, right?

Now HousingWorks.net – does a good job getting subsidized offers out to people.  HW covers the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Housingworks doesn’t work direct with renters. No, they train advocates who in turn have access to an automated system that if you personally use it through an advocate, you can place one HousingWorks application into the System and have it automatically add your name to wait list at subsidized locations across the state.  Imagine that. One click and you go Poof! onto the waiting list of 10 units without licking a stamp.

These application opportunities require luck and patience for most. Of course, there are lottery offer situations where your special condition, age, or circumstance gets your number bumped up higher on the list than another persons.  PREFERENCES are at work here.

It is all about the numbers.

Talked to a guy the day the Tall Ships were in town. He works at a Capital One coffee shop. He entered a lottery in Chelsea for one of a limited number of condos in a particular building.  He won! There were 83 applicants in that resale contest.  I think he told me 11 were winners.

See there you have it. Anyone can be a winner.

And who among us wouldn’t clap for a barista to win.

See who won this Mass Lottery,

You can dial in a request for better affordable housing outcomes in Boston today.

From the Campaign Treasurer of
the Community Preservation Act
making Affordable Housing Policy Better

Hello Folks,

I am sending this email to ask a huge favor on behalf of the Community Preservation Act. It is political policy that sets  affordable rents and mortgages.  As you know, politics is the control of a limited amount of resources. And the ruling party wants tax cuts for the rich at someone’s expense.

I am asking that you give your city councilor a call and leave your name and address. Tell them you want them to vote YES and support the Better Boston (YBB) position for  CPA – the Community Preservation Act question the public voted f9r by wide margins during recent elections.

ring up these councilors

  • Timothy McCarthy 617-635-4210
  • Michael Flaherty (at-large) 617-635-4205
  • Michele Wu (at-large) (Council President) 617-635-3115
  • Annissa Essaibi George (At-large) 617-635-4376
  • Ayanna Pressley (At-large)617-635-4217

While the mayor supports our influence to seat YBB board members, City Councilors do not. Help us change their minds.

The CPA wants want people of every race, gender, income, and neighborhood to be included when the benefits start to flow.

Last Monday, city councilors said they would not include any formal role for YBB in choosing CPA committee members.

Thanks for pledging to call your district city councilor and some at-large city councilors. it can change their minds for the better.

contact Thadine Brown, thadine_brown@yahoo.com for questions or after you call the councilors.

Thank you,

Thadine
phone number is available.
