authorStaff Writer on Jul 8, 2019

The deadline to enter the affordable housing lottery for a chance to rent an apartment at Sandy Hollow Cove or Speonk Commons has been extended to Monday, July 22.

There are 37 apartments available at Speonk Commons, on North Phillips Avenue near the Speonk train station, and another 28 at Sandy Hollow Cove, off Sandy Hollow Road in Tuckahoe. Between both locations, there are 52 studios or one-bedroom apartments and 13 two-bedroom apartments.

Most of the units are set aside for households earning up to 60 percent of the area median income, or AMI, which is determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Sixty percent of AMI amounts to $52,080 for a single person, $59,520 for two people, and $74,480 for a family of four. Seven units are open to applicants earning up to 80 percent of AMI, which is $69,440 for a single person, $79,360 for two people, and $99,200 for a household of four.

The two affordable housing developments are a result of a partnership between the Southampton Town Housing Authority, a government agency charged with providing affordable housing, and Georgica Green Ventures, a for-profit, Jericho-based company that builds affordable housing.

There is no cost to apply, and anyone may apply, regardless of what town, or even state, they currently reside in. However, 12 units are set aside for applicants with mobility, hearing and/or vision disabilities, two for people who reside or work in the Town of Southampton, and one for a veteran or surviving spouse of a veteran.

The deadline was originally July 5. Now, applications must be postmarked no later than July 22 and mailed to Sandy Hollow Cove & Speonk Commons, P.O. Box 5052, Southampton, NY 11968-2068.

The application form can be downloaded from To receive an application via mail, send a self-addressed envelope to Sandy Hollow Cove and Speonk Commons, 4 Executive Blvd, Suite 100, Suffern, NY 10901. To request an application via phone, call 631-230-2050 and follow the instructions. Via email, write to
