New Housing Monitor for NYCHA’s Chronic Housing Problems

Posted On: February 25, 2019

Last week, HUD Secretary Ben Carson announced in a memo that he selected Bart M. Schwartz to be the federal monitor for NYCHA’s notoriously poor conditions. The issue of these poor housing conditions has arisen recently due to a number of factors including HUD official Lynne Patton’s month-long nightmare tour of the NYCHA’s buildings/properties.

As the new federal monitor, Schwartz will oversee the housing authority’s key operations.

“With Mr. Schwartz’s appointment, NYCHA can move full steam ahead on an action plan to improve the deplorable housing conditions being endured by its residents.” –HUD Secretary Ben Carson.

HUD is currently providing NYCHA with $1.5 billion. Over the next 10 years, HUD plans to invest at least $2.2 billion to combat the housing agency’s long term issues.
