Housing lottery applications are open for 42 newly constructed apartments at Parish House in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill neighborhood. Eligible applicants must earn from $92,572 to $187,330 depending on the size of the household. Rents start at $2,700 for a one bedroom.

There are 36 one bedrooms and six two-bedroom apartments available. The area median income (AMI) requirements for all applicants is 130 percent. AMI depends on how many people you live with. Currently the AMI for New York City is $106,800 for a two-person household. 

The 17-story building is at 230 Classon Ave. and the nearest subway station is two blocks down Classon Avenue, where you can catch the G train. Amenities at the building include a gym and dance studio, as well as an outdoor and a rooftop terrace. There's also covered parking, a shared laundry room, and storage. Additional fees apply for the use of most amenities. 

The apartments all have dishwashers as well as washer/dryers. Tenants are responsible for paying their electricity bills, including for heat and cooking. 

Applications must be submitted online or postmarked no later than April 28th.
