Public Charge Housing Lottery?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

My wife lives in an apartment she got under Housing Lottery (rent controlled) and she added me as an occupant (I came here on a K1 visa in April 2019). We filed for AOS in June after getting married, could this be considered as a Public Charge and lead to a denial of our AOS application? Should we move? We don't use any benefits or plan to do so and have enough funds, my wife also has a good paying job and I will also get one once I get my EAD/GC.

 

Please let me know.

 

Thank you!

You filed before Oct 15th. You will not complete the I944.

Yes but at the time of the AOS interview, will this be of concern or be a problem?

My understanding of the housing lottery is just a drawing to be able to apply for reasonable rent controlled housing (as NY city is so expensive)

and this is not Section 8 housing for low income

 

That's true but also the criteria to be eligible had income ranges and this is affordable housing lottery so I'm just concerned. Any insight or help is appreciated.

No. The rule specifically states that those who filed before 12 midnite Oct 15th are not affected. 

You did.

this is not section 8 as government funded  / it is not the same as a public charge

 

this lottery is suppose to stop the high rents in NYC from going up and up and is a block on certain areas and apartments to be for rent control to allow normal citizens a chance to live and work in the city
