Permanent Affordability Commitment Together (PACT)

PACT is a critical part of the Authority's strategic plan to repair public housing to improve residents' quality of life. Under PACT, NYCHA seeks to identify resources and opportunities to make major improvements to developments, while preserving long-term affordability and maintaining strong resident rights. PACT includes portfolios under the federal Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) and NYCHA's Unfunded Units (also known as LLC II and PACT City/State Developments). PACT creates public-private partnerships to repair and manage the developments.

The federal RAD program ensures permanent affordability, while New York City’s PACT ensures some of the strongest resident protections in the country. NYCHA has worked with a number of resident leaders and advocacy groups to identify key issues and a set of principles to guide NYCHA’s RAD implementation. These principles outline resident rights, responsibilities of a new property manager/developer, and NYCHA’s role.

 

 

Why PACT?

  • NYCHA has experienced a cumulative federal capital grant funding loss of $1.5 billion since 2001, resulting in a huge backlog of unmet capital needs – extensive repairs.
  • In order to make all the repairs NYCHA needs more than $32 billion.
  • Funding generated through PACT will help NYCHA make repair such as:
  • Comprehensive mold remediation and projects that could include roof replacements or facade upgrades
  • New kitchens, bathrooms and flooring, renovated hallways and stairwells
  • Lighting, new fencing, doors and windows new asphalt and concrete site work

PACT Partners Request for Qualifications (RFQ)

NYCHA is committed to partnering with as many qualified entities as possible to achieve the goal and make these PACT conversions responsive to residents’ needs. An RFQ is released annually to invite new entities to become PACT partners, eligible to participate in the program.

Request for Qualifications Release

On January 3, 2020, the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) announced the release of two complementary requests for qualifications (RFQs) to solicit prospective development partners. The RFQs support the Authority’s aim to undertake the largest Section 8 conversion program in the country through NYCHA’s Permanent Affordability Commitment Together (PACT) initiative. The RFQs enable NYCHA to streamline the PACT procurement process by creating pre-qualified lists of small-scale and large-scale developers, property managers, general contractors, and social service providers to partner on forthcoming conversions. The initial RFQs to solicit development partners for PACT were released on April 12, 2019. NYCHA intends to re-release these RFQs every year to give partners a continual opportunity to prequalify.

Developer, general contractor, and property manager responses were due by 2:00 PM on Friday, January 24, 2020. Social service provider responses were due by 2:00PM on Friday, February 14, 2020. The RFQs are listed as Negotiation Number #94802 for developers, general contractors and property managers, and Negotiation Number #94803 for social service providers.


Upcoming PACT RFEI: Round 9

NYCHA is seeking proposals from applicants consisting of a Project Team of Pre-Qualified Partners for financing, tenant-in-place rehabilitation, and property management, to facilitate the conversion of five distinct “Projects” consisting of a total of twenty public housing developments.
