— LOTTERY RESULTS EXPLAINED —

The lottery drawing results show participants “Placement” per lottery registration number. If you are unable to locate your lottery registration number, please call or email us and we will be happy to provide it to you. As a reminder, and as discussed during our second information session on May 25, 2021, the lottery assigns each application a unique registration number and randomly determines the lottery “placement” number, which ultimately determines selection order.

There will be 11 of 17 apartments offered to approved applicants selected from the local preference lottery results. Applicants will be selected based on having the lowest placement number per category (bedroom size, preference designation/priority).

Preference qualification was based on households that reside or work in Cambridge as of the date of initial application and as documented with the initial application according to the priority list shown below.

 

— Local Preference and Priority Ranking —

Note: Priority #1, 2, 4 & 5 apply to 2- or 3-bedroom units

Priority 1: Households that currently reside in Cambridge with at least one child under 6 years of age.
