INFO FROM NYCHA:
Dear Resident Association Leaders, and Residents
As you know, Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation in June authorizing the creation of the NYC Public Housing Preservation Trust, which will bring billions of dollars in comprehensive renovations to thousands of NYCHA apartments while maintaining residents’ rights and keeping our properties 100 percent public.
The Trust legislation requires the creation of a resident opt-in voting process, which will allow residents to decide the future of their homes.
In the month of September, NYCHA will host two (2) Virtual Trust Town Halls to provide general information about the Trust and answer residents’ questions. Additionally, there will be two (2) Virtual Trust Voting Workshops and six (6) In-Person Trust Voting Workshops to get residents’ input on the design of the voting process.
