In an effort to maintain the safety of residents, the New York City Housing Authority publishes the names of individuals who have been permanently excluded from our public housing developments. The purpose of the "NYCHA Not Wanted List" is to keep residents informed of the Housing Authority's ongoing effort to improve the quality of life for all New Yorkers in public housing and to allow for the peaceful and safe use of our facilities.
Please note: The individuals whose name appears on the "NYCHA Not Wanted List" are excluded from NYCHA property based on NYCHA's Administrative Hearing Process, and should not be confused with the Trespass Notice Program under Mayor Bloomberg's Operation Safe Housing Initiative.
