Harlem Rep. Adriano Espaillat Statement On Agreement Between NYCHA And HUD

February 2, 2019

Today, Representative Adriano Espaillat issued the following statement regarding the announcement by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson and the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA):

“This agreement makes clear that the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) can no longer shirk its responsibility to its residents, our city, and our communities,” said Rep. Adriano Espaillat. “Years of underfunding and deprivation of resources have led us to this point. While I am glad to see New York City and the federal government are finally recognizing the need for considerable investment and higher standards, we know that actions speak louder than words.

“I am committed to ensuring the promises made in this agreement are kept. We must make sure that the needs of NYCHA residents are heard and addressed expeditiously. This is the standard that New Yorkers expect and deserve. I will continue working with my colleagues in Congress, the New York congressional delegation, and across government to deliver these results.”

Rep. Espaillat represents the highest concentration of public housing, more than any district in the state of New York and the nation, including 54 NYCHA properties throughout New York’s 13th congressional district.
