Prepare your paperwork and cross your fingers: Another affordable housing lottery is open to application in Brooklyn. They’re coming in at ludicrous speed recently.

This time it’s in Crown Heights at 267 Rogers Ave., a former church lot turned fully affordable development, with 80 percent Department of Homeless Services-referred homeless families and 20 percent households with income requirements. A cloud of controversy surrounded the five-story development’s construction.

There are a total of 33 units up for lottery – 4 one-bedrooms, 27 two-bedrooms and 2 three-bedrooms. Eligible one-bedroom applicants must have a household of one to two people and an annual income of $31,920 to $45,840; two-bedroom applicants should have two to four-person households with a yearly income of $38,503 to $57,240; and three-bedroom applicants should live in three- to six-person households with an annual income of $44,298 to $66,240. The one-bedrooms will rent for $931/month, the two-bedrooms for $1,123/month and the three-bedrooms for $1,292/month.

Current residents of Brooklyn Community Board 9 will get preference for half the units, Municipal employees will get preference for five percent of the units, and mobility-, vision-, and hearing-disabled applicants will have a portion of units set aside for them.
