The latest request for expressions of interest from the Authority asks applicants to submit proposals that center resident engagement, enhance placemaking, invest in ambitious energy and sustainability upgrades, and create jobs and economic opportunities for NYCHA residents

NEW YORK – Today, the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) released a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) to attract development partners for new projects under the Authority’s Permanent Affordability Commitment Together (PACT) program to repair and preserve more than 3,647 units in The Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan.

NYCHA continues to make steady progress towards the goal of bringing comprehensive repairs and much-needed community resources to developments across New York City through the PACT program,” said NYCHA Chair & CEO Greg Russ. “We are confident that the proposals garnered through this process will make long-lasting improvements to our residents’ health, prosperity, and quality of life.”

“We continue to improve the PACT program by incorporating the feedback we receive from our residents and other community stakeholders and by prioritizing community-wide improvements that our residents deserve,” said NYCHA EVP of Real Estate Development Jonathan Gouveia. “The goals and priorities outlined in this latest RFEI will allow us to be more responsive to the needs of the different communities that we serve throughout the five boroughs.”

“We are excited for the opportunities that the PACT program will bring to Metro North Plaza by way of repairs, capital upgrades and social services for the betterment of the residents and the community,” said Stanley Johnson, Metro North Resident and Resident Association President.

“I am excited about the opportunity that PACT brings to our development because the program will address the long overdue repairs and upgrades of the development,” said Joyce Major, Wilson Houses Resident and Resident Association President. “We look forward to working with NYCHA and our future development partners to make sure the planned work meets the needs of our community.”

The official Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI)  issued by the Authority is a key step in unlocking the funds necessary to address critical repairs and social service needs for the more than 7,900 residents living at the NYCHA developments described above. Residents in developments participating in the PACT program will see their buildings, common spaces, and apartments modernized through extensive renovations. Repairs to individual apartments will include comprehensive work on kitchens, bathrooms, windows, floors, and living spaces. Chronic heat and gas outages will be addressed, and renovations of interiors and common spaces, as well as elevator repairs, will be completed. Additionally, there will be improvements to building security, including entry systems and additional security cameras. On-site social services and community programming will be enhanced through partnerships with local community-based organizations and service providers. All residents will have an opportunity to provide their input on apartment finishes, building materials, major system repairs, public space improvements, and social service plans.

Through PACT, developments will be included in the federal Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) and convert to a more stable, federally funded program called Project-Based Section 8. This allows NYCHA to unlock additional funding for repairs, while maintaining permanent affordability and ensuring resident rights and protections are preserved.

PACT brings new partnerships with private and non-profit development partners, who will conduct the repairs, serve as the new on-site property manager, and provide enhanced social services and community programs. NYCHA continues to own the land and buildings, administer the Section 8 subsidy and waitlist, and monitor conditions at each development.

In addition to ensuring compliance with the federal RAD requirements, NYCHA will require that partners adhere to the higher level of standards outlined in the RAD Roundtable Guiding Principles, which were created in collaboration with NYCHA residents and advocacy groups to preserve resident protections and guarantee permanent affordability.

Since the program's inception in 2016, PACT has resulted in the investment of over $1.8 billion across 49 developments. NYCHA’s goal is to modernize 62,000 apartments, or roughly one-third of its housing stock, through the PACT program over the next decade.
