Following these iinterviews, invitations are expected to be sent out to city employees.  In this category  5% of housing is being allocated. The next preferential group is expected to be those who reside in Community Board 2, which includes long Island City, as well as parts of Woodside and Sunnyside in Queens.  The preferential allocation for this group is 50 percent of all available housing.  Finally invitations will be sent to the ramaing applicants based on lottery draw until all houses have been leased.
