The Hoboken-North Hudson YMCA is accepting pre-applications to enter the lottery for the newly renovated Single Room Occupancy units. Renovations on the upgrades to the Single Room Occupancy portion of the building, including the new 5th floor, should be completed by December, 2012 and ready for occupancy.
Pre-Applications will be accepted until Friday, October 12, 2012 . All qualified Pre-Applications will be entered into a lottery to be held on October 17, 2012.
The Single Room Occupancy rental units will be available to low- and moderate-income single men. The units are owned by MBS Housing and will be managed by the YMCA.
