A Report Card for the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA)

On August 8th, 2011 the Community Voices Heard (CVH), in partnership with the Community Development Project (CDP), CAAAV: Organizing Asian Communities, Families United for Racial and Economic Equality (FUREE), Good Old Lower East Side (GOLES), and Mothers on the Move (MOM), released a new report titled “A Report Card for the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA): Residents’ Evaluation of NYCHA and Recommendations for Improvement.” The report is the result of a year-long, citywide, participatory research project. Public Housing Organizing groups collected 1,446 report cards from 71 NYCHA developments that asked public housing residents to “grade” NYCHA on issues related to repairs, maintenance and management. The report includes NYCHA’s grades, research findings and recommendations for NYCHA to improve programs and policies.
