New York: CDP to release new report about NYCHA and Hurricane Sandy

March 12, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

On Wednesday March 12 at 11am on the Steps of City Hall, please join CDP and community organizations from across the City, including the Alliance for a Just Rebuilding, ALIGN, Community Voices Heard, Good Old Lower East Side, Families United for Racial and Economic Equality, Faith in New York, NY Communities for Change and Red Hook Initiative to release our new report, Weathering the Storm: Rebuilding a More Resilient New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) Post-Sandy.

The report, using data from 600 surveys, interviews and background research, reveals some of the major issues that NYCHA residents have faced since Hurricane Sandy, such as slow and inadequate repairs, malfunctioning boilers, mold and a lack of job opportunities. The report, which offers practical and effective solutions, comes at an opportune moment for public housing residents in New York City. With new leaders such as Mayor Bill de Blasio, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and NYCHA Chair Shola Olatoye taking office – and funding coming into NYCHA for rebuilding and resiliency – we hope this report can provide a roadmap for the City’s new leaders to use as they partner with Community Based Organizations to assess how to spend Sandy related funds, revise NYCHA’s emergency procedures and consider broader NYCHA reforms.

Please join us to release this important report. Weathering the Storm will be released at a press conference on the steps of City Hall on Wednesday, March 12th at 11am.

We will also be holding a Report Briefing and Work Session on Wednesday, March 26th from 1pm – 3pm at the Community Service Society of New York (105 E 22nd St in Manhattan) to allow people to dig in deeper to our findings and help us think through how to move the recommendations forward.
