Testimony: NYLAG Advocates Against NYCHA Significant Amendment

New York City’s affordable housing continues to dwindle further and further. Anna Luft, the supervising attorney in NYLAG’s Tenants’ Rights Unit, submitted a written testimony about the loopholes in a proposed Significant Amendment from NYCHA, which includes the total demolition of three NYCHA developments. Below is an excerpt from her written testimony: 

…the Significant Amendment contains no clear procedures or legally binding protections for currents residents. It is crucial that the procedures guiding these due process rights be fully drafted before the Amendment is submitted or approved. Without clear procedures set out before the process begins, residents will have no way of knowing where they will live once demolition starts—or whether they will have anywhere to live at all.”
