Join the conversation about community and capital investment at your development made possible through PACT.
Your development has been selected to be a part of the Permanent Affordability Commitment Together (PACT) program. This means that your homes and community spaces will receive much needed renovations, you will have access to employment opportunities affiliated with the repairs and on-site social services will be enhanced.
Because this is your home and your community, we want your expertise to shape what PACT will do at your development. We’d like you to join us in a community planning process to design and envision your community spaces and provide critical feedback on any proposed upgrades for your home.
Through PACT, your development 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 funding to complete comprehensive repairs at your development, while also ensuring homes remain permanently affordable and residents have the same basic rights as they possess in the public housing program.
Once the property is converted to Project-Based Section 8, NYCHA will lease the land and buildings to the development partners, who will conduct the repairs, serve as the new on-site property manager, and provide enhanced social services and community programs.

February 2022- NYCHA has identified the PACT partners who will deliver more than $360 million in comprehensive repairs and upgrades to Reid Apartments and Park Rock Consolidated, serve as the property manager, and provide enhanced social services and community programs.
BRP Companies, Urbane (both minority-owned business enterprises), and Fairstead will lead the project as co-developers; Fairstead will also serve as the general contractor and property manager. The Local Development Corporation of East New York will serve as a community engagement partner, and in the coming months, a social service provider will be added to the team.
With the development team now in place, NYCHA will continue to work closely with you, your tenant association leaders, and other partners to create detailed rehabilitation, property management, and social services plans, as well as promote job opportunities and enhance resident amenities and programs. The planning process will take approximately 12 to 18 months, and renovations are expected to begin in early 2023. In 2023, Fairstead will also take over from NYCHA as the property manager for your development. However, you will remain a NYCHA resident, as NYCHA will continue to own the land and buildings, determine your rent, and monitor the performance of all PACT partners.
