Q9. Are you aware of the City's initiative, NextGeneration, NYCHA, an initiative that aims to privatize NYCHA properties?
NYCHA is home to over 8 million NYC residents (or 1 in 14 New Yorkers) and is an important source of housing for NYC’s teachers, police officers, nurses and more. With an estimated $65 million deficit (expected to be $400 million in a decade), and $17 billion in unmet repairs, this source of housing is under threat. Meanwhile, residents’ living conditions continue to threaten their health, quality of life, and financial stability. These human rights violations are not acceptable.
The Mayor’s solution is NextGeneration NYCHA. "NextGen" aims to resolve the financial issues by selling off properties to private developers and/or shifting buildings into private management and apartments from Section 9 into Section 8 (also known as RAD - Rental Assistance Demonstration).
City calls for developers to build affordable housing on four NYCHA sites:
