APCHA ANNOUNCEMENT: 802 West Main Lottery

Aspen Pitkin County Housing Authority APCHA

There are 122 signed up for the Category 2 units and 45 signed up for the Category 3 units. 

There are a total of 10 units (5 one-bedroom units at Category 2 and 5 one-bedroom units at Category 3). However, the City of Aspen provided a previous tenant of 802 W Main prior to the redevelopment of the property a priority for one of the units; therefore, only 4 units are available for the Category 3 lottery.

Two separate lotteries will be held Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at Noon via Zoom. The list of names have been put in alphabetical order and each individual has been assigned a number. A ping pong ball with each number will be placed in the lottery drum and APCHA will pull out one ping pong ball at a time and announce that number.  APCHA will pull out 25 ping pong balls per lottery.   The first lottery will be the Category 3 lottery, followed by Category 2.  In between the first and second lottery, APCHA will replace the 25 balls that have been pulled and add the additional numbered ping pong balls from 46 to 122.

The list of potential tenants will be posted on APCHA’s website by category on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. as well as the Zoom information.

The top five people for the Category 2 units and top four people for the Category 3 units will be contacted immediately following the lottery. They will be provided a deadline to provide all required paperwork. If they do not meet the deadline or do not qualify, APCHA will notify the next individual on the list. The individuals will be able to pick units in the order their numbers were pulled.
