PACT is a critical part of NextGeneration NYCHA, the Authority's 10-year 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.
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
