NYCHA Federal Monitor Statement RE: U.S. Attorney Announcement For Application Process For Second Term Of NYCHA Monitorship

May 24. 2023

With the first five-year term of the NYCHA Monitorship ending in early 2024, and consistent with the HUD Agreement and HUD practices, SDNY and HUD are soliciting expressions of interest from parties who want to be considered for the NYCHA Monitorship role for the next five years. Over the last four years our team of experts has worked with HUD, SDNY, NYCHA, the City and NYCHA residents to put NYCHA on the right track. Since we agree with the parties that there is work yet to be done, we will be expressing our interest in serving as the Monitor for the next five years so that we may build upon the progress that has been made thus far.

Very truly yours,

Bart M. Schwartz

Federal Monitor appointed pursuant to Agreement dated January 31, 2019
