In May 2015, NYCHA launched NextGeneration NYCHA, 10-year strategic plan to preserve and protect public housing for current residents as well as the next generation of New Yorkers. Our plan outlined a roadmap to safe, healthy, connected homes and communities for NYCHA residents.
We have made significant progress on our goals and can continue to do so if we receive adequate funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) which provides most of the funding for public housing. Unfortunately, the cuts that the Trump administration has proposed for HUD in 2018 would result in a $220 million (68%) cut to NYCHA’s capital budget and a $100–$150 million (13%) cut to our operating budget.
