Affordable housing datasets?

Maybe I'm missing something but I've looked at some of the NYC open data repositories and I can't find any data sets containing currently available affordable housing units. There seems to be a list of affordable housing lotteries on this page: But I don't see a way to get access to the raw data for it. And no, I'm not going to manually scrape the site for the data. :) Thanks!

I found [this]( info. Unfortunately, it's from December 2012. I found it on the third page here:

Peter and Sofya - our partners at HPD have offered to share the latest, most complete datasets of units available. This will still be a partial list (part of this challenge will be finding new ways to identify what units are subsidized but not currently on the list), but it will take you a step further than the datasets on Open Data right now. More on this very soon.

You should check out the datasets BetaNYC hosts at Also, you should take a look at their discussion forum. Quite a few interesting conversations on affordable housing data.
