NYCHA’s A Blueprint for Change is a set of ideas for improving residents’ home while protecting their rights. At the core of this work are NYCHA’s efforts to deliver better services to residents in a range of critical areas, transform as an organization, and bring our buildings the capital investment they need to support the generations of New Yorkers to come. NYCHA is engaging residents, staff, and other stakeholders so we can develop these ideas and make progress together.

NYCHA Transformation Plan

NYCHA’s Transformation Plan, part of the Authority’s Blueprint for Change, outlines various ways that the Authority will become a stronger organization and better serve residents. It was created from ideas and feedback that NYCHA received directly from residents and staff through virtual town halls, emails, social media, phone calls, and other engagement sessions throughout 2019 and 2020.
