Boston City Hall puts more affordable apartment and home deals out where people can find them.

Boston affordable apt listings are getting longer at City Hall web site.

Go to This City Hall web site section  and see them.

Act Fast, Deadlines matter.

The list has  “affordable housing,” price for middle class earners and it has apartments that rent at family affordable prices.

But there’s not enough of either to go around so there are lotteries and wait lists to compete in.

You will have to wade through the fine details to pre-determine your eligibility.

And unless you are making more money than you can spend every week, chances are you are qualified for the deals.
