Public Housing

CVH’s public housing campaign has been fighting to save and improve public housing in New York City since 2006. The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) operates 343 developments of public housing throughout the five boroughs and is home to 5.1% of the city’s population. However, public housing is in a state of financial crisis. NYCHA has been operating with a deficit, leading to deteriorating conditions and cutbacks in services for residents. Further, NYCHA is attempting to balance its budget on the backs of its residents through rent and fee increases and further cuts in services. CVH’s public housing campaign has been focusing on securing funds from our elected officials at all levels- city, state and federal- to ensure the stability of NYCHA for its low to moderate income residents.
