Represent NYC: NYCHA with Assembly Member Rodriguez
In 1934, New York City made history officially establishing the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) as the first public housing authority in the country. Since then NYCHA has gone from providing coveted affordable housing to one that is crumbling. Currently it’s facing $32 billion in capital repairs, and the housing agency is seriously struggling to maintain healthy living conditions for it’s tenants. Unsurprisingly, a recent audit on NYCHA’s buildings brought to light major issues, concluding that NYCHA is failing to provide safe affordable housing to the city's most vulnerable population.
This week on Represent NYC join New York State Assembly member Robert J Rodriguez and guest New York State Senator, Julia Salazar, Victor Bach of Community Service Society and Daniel Barber of Citywide Council of Presidents as they discuss what can be done to ensure safe and habitable apartments for NYCHA residents.
