Modernizing NYCHA Properties

As North America’s largest public housing authority, NYCHA owns more than 177,000 apartments in over 2,500 buildings across 335 developments throughout New York City’s five boroughs. These developments presently require more than $40 billion in capital investment due to decades of insufficient funding and deferred maintenance. NYCHA has various programs aimed at continually mobilizing and investing in the modernization and long-term sustainability of New York City's public housing.

The Authority's Asset & Capital Management (A&CM) Division leads and manages much of this work, including a multi-billion dollar capital program, a historic real estate transaction portfolio, oversight of partners renovating and managing NYCHA properties, and NYCHA's Sustainability Agenda. Through innovative financing models, strong partnership with residents and other stakeholders, strategic, data-driven portfolio planning, and cost-effective project delivery, we aim to comprehensively modernize all our properties, buildings and apartments.

Capital Investment Needs & Plans

NYCHA undertakes a physical needs assessment (PNA) exercise every five years to estimate the capital investments required across the Authority's properties. The 2017 PNA summary report is included below, and the results of the 2022 PNA exercise will be released publicly in early 2023. Capital investment plans based on priority needs across NYCHA properties and other considerations are included NYCHA's Annual Plan documents, also linked below.
