Bronx Council on the Arts and The Actors Fund are pleased to present this affordable housing seminar that aims to help participants navigate the process, and get organized so they can be prepared to apply.

The application process is explained in simple steps and helps applicants avoid common mistakes. Information regarding income eligibility and documentation is discussed to address the specific needs of arts workers.

Since many artist and other workers in the gig economy have income that is episodic, fluctuating and from several different sources, the seminar explores different methods for calculating and verifying annual household income.

Daniel Arnow, the Director of Affordable Housing Initiatives at The Actors Fund, will be the instructor.

The workshop will also provide historical context, an overview of affordable housing programs, and updates on the City’s housing plan.

This seminar will address the following questions:

  • How do you find and apply for affordable housing?
  • What are the eligibility requirements? (Income, household size, credit, housing history, etc.)
  • How does a housing lottery work?
  • Can you get on a waiting list?
  • How do you document your income if it fluctuates year to year?
  • How can you best prepare yourself for an interview?
  • What are your options if you are denied?
