1. More than 400,000 New Yorkers live in the New York City Housing Authority’s (NYCHA) 334 public housing developments around the five boroughs.  In order to qualify for public housing, an applicant’s gross family income must be below a certain amount, which is determined by family size. For example, a family of four may be eligible if the total gross family income is not more than $66,400.
With a mix of ARRA funds along with private funds, NYCHA has performed much-needed capital renovation work.  Through these efforts, NYCHA has improved the quality of life for more than 136,000 families at 196 developments.  To date, here are some of the ways that NYCHA has put ARRA funds to use:

12,000 families in 22 developments received new energy-efficient ovens


55,000 families in 52 developments received new energy-efficient refrigerators


195 elevators at 14 developments were modernized with enhancements, like electronic safety edge sensors and new dome light fixtures, or replaced entirely to provide faster, safer and more reliable service 


Roofs have been replaced in 205 buildings at 43 developments to prevent structural damage due to water leaks


Brickwork and masonry repairs were conducted in 244 buildings at 38 developments to address severe deterioration, cracking and bulging of exterior façade elements 


Steel bar fencing was installed at 30 developments


Vinyl floor tiles, water tanks and interior compactors were replaced at 35 developments


Two developments received upgrades to their building entrance, including door replacements to provide well-lit, safe, and secured access into building lobbies
