Metro IAF in the News: July 30, 2019


Editorial Opinion: New York's Public Housing Isn't Getting Better

On July 30th, The New York Times published an Editorial laying out the ongoing problems in New York City's public housing. This was informed by interviews with several Metro IAF NY tenant leaders, including Bernard Smith from South Bronx Churches who is quoted in the editorial.

The editorial also focused on:
  • A report by the Federal Government’s Monitor detailing the multiple ways in which the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) has not moved fast enough to make reforms. The monitor was appointed as a result of Metro IAF leaders pushing the US Attorney to investigate corruption and neglect at NYCHA.
  • How much more work NYCHA must do to properly remediate mold in order to be in compliance with Metro IAF’s Baez V. NYCHA Federal Court Consent Decree, and 
  • An audit by Metro IAF ally, Comptroller Scott Stringer on how NYCHA continues to cause leaks and mold, as well as waste money, through improper roof repair.
Metro IAF is continuing to work to ensure the public officials do not merely expose NYCHA’s wrong doing, but actually hold them accountable, and that the Federal Court fully implements the independent oversight contained in our revised mold consent decree, which could force NYCHA to actually improve living conditions for all of its tenants.
