Public housing is in crisis, NYCHA has been abandoned for too long, and this abuse must end. We know it is an injustice to let our neighbors live in such terrible conditions, and we have a responsibility to fix it.
NYCHA RESIDENTS SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEDUCT REPAIRS THEY FUND THEMSELVES FROM THEIR RENT.
NYCHA is chronically underfunded, and the state must commit to funding major infrastructural improvement without jeopardizing the future of public housing stock through privatization or further neglect. Until then, we must support residents in their efforts to maintain livable conditions and ensure they do not shoulder the financial burden for doing the work NYCHA can't.
