Federal Monitor Statement on New NYCHA Appointments

July 06, 2023

This is a good day for the residents of NYCHA. I’m deeply gratified that Lisa Bova-Hiatt has been appointed permanent CEO. In her interim role, we have worked constructively with Ms. Bova-Hiatt on making many needed improvements at NYCHA. Jamie Rubin’s appointment as Chairman is another positive development. Mr. Rubin’s goals for NYCHA will show real benefits for the residents. I believe the right leadership team is in place to deliver even more meaningful progress in the everyday lives of residents.

Very truly yours,
Bart M. Schwartz
