Reports on NYCHA's Economic Impact and Cost to Rehabilitate vs. Replace Public Housing
HR&A Advisors prepared two reports for NYCHA. The first report demonstrates that NYCHA is an economic engine that sustains 30,000 jobs in New York City and State and contributes $6 billion annually through all of its spending activities to the local economies. The second report estimates that it would cost $17 billion to bring all of NYCHA’s public housing stock to a state of good repair, while tearing down and rebuilding all of public housing would escalate those costs to $66 billion.

Safety and Security Task Force Report
The Safety and Security Task Force, a partnership among the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), Citywide Council of Presidents (CCOP), and New York City Police Department (NYPD), released its first detailed report on the work it has accomplished to make public housing in New York City safer and more secure for residents. Recommendations made by the Task Force have led to numerous solutions that improve safety in NYCHA developments, including the upcoming installation of layered access control in Mott Haven Houses, the creation of Resident Watch and standardizing signage throughout all buildings. Brought about by collaboration between NYCHA and the CCOP, the Safety and Security Task Force convened for the first time in December 2009.
