Troubled agency seems to be digging a deeper hole
NYCHA failed to report instances of young children having elevated blood lead levels in the past 12 months.
By the numbers: The housing agency only reported 17 out of the 40 cases to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. It’s time for them to be held accountable.
What comes next: With a staggering $25 billion worth of repairs needed for public housing in New York, the NYCHA should partner with private developers and management companies. There are the 176,000 units in dire need of repairs — time to fix the problem!
