Print Ready, Set, Apply! Translations

Getting ready to apply for affordable housing takes time, and it involves more than just filling out paperwork. Each building has different income qualifications and required materials, which can make putting together a strong application confusing. What exactly is affordable housing, and what does it take to qualify to live in it? How much money should you save and what kind of credit do you need to have? 

The New York City Department of Housing Preservation & Development (HPD) approached CUP to help create Ready, Set, Apply!, a guide to applying for affordable housing subsidized by HPD and the New York City Housing Development Corporation (HDC). This guide lays out each step of the application process, how to organize a strong application for an affordable housing unit, and provides referrals to other resources that can support your application. In 2017, CUP partnered with HPD to translate Ready, Set, Apply! into six additional languages, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Korean, and Russian.
