Yonkers adds 3,000 people to the affordable housing waiting list Tuesday

The Yonkers Municipal Housing Authority (MHACY) will be adding applicants to their housing choice voucher waiting list for the first time in a decade on Tuesday at the Yonkers Riverfront Library. 
There are 14,500 families who applied for their chance to be added to the highly coveted list.  
MHACY has assigned each applicant a number for the drawing that will consist of numbers put on pieces of paper drawn from a tumbler much like the lottery seen on TV.
Those selected will be notified within a week after the lottery and can use their vouchers anywhere in the country or they may be able to accept housing within MHACY's apartment buildings.
