Expressing Concerns about NYCHA’s 2013 Draft Annual Plan

RSS Feed

On July 25, I submitted testimony at the New York City Housing Authority’s (NYCHA) public hearing on its 2013 Draft Annual Plan, expressing my deep concerns over several aspects of the plan, including the lack of transparency in the agency’s controversial revenue-generating proposals, the failure to adequately address the backlog in crucial repairs and basic maintenance, and the agency’s inhumane policies and procedures for moving residents who live in under-occupied units.  Please see my testimony attached.
