New York City will be required to invest billions in public housing as part of an agreement reached with federal prosecutors after a two-year investigation into the squalid conditions maintained within the city’s housing units.

The deal, which also requires the appointment of a federal monitor to oversee reforms, was reached after U.S. attorneys for the Southern District of New York accused city officials of knowingly maintaining unsafe housing conditions and publicly lying about the extent of the danger posed to residents in a suit filed Monday.

“The New York City Housing Authority violates basic health and safety regulations of the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD),” the complaint filed in a Manhattan federal court states. “These regulations require NYCHA to protect children from the lead paint that is present within apartments in roughly one-third of NYCHA developments and, more generally, to provide residents decent, safe and sanitary housing. NYCHA has repeatedly made false statements to HUD and the public regarding these issues and has deceived HUD inspectors.”

The agreement requires that the city provide roughly $2 billion in funding to the NYCHA over the next five years and, once that dries up, contribute $200 million per year until the issues are resolved. The settlement was accompanied by a consent decree, which requires that a court-appointed monitor oversee reform efforts.

Ya don't suppose that the evil Trump administration would go after wonderful democrats for political reasons do ya?
Oh, the evils of Trumpism, sanctuary cities will have to provide better living conditions for illegal aliens and other minorities !

No matter how much taxpayer money you throw at this, you will NEVER get ahead. When something is free, demand is infinite.

I’m guessing this housing is what is referred to as “the Projects”. Billions have been wasted already. What difference does another couple billion make? :roll:

I am old enough to remember the days before public housing when squalid conditions were blamed on greedy rich landlords. Then the federal government almighty stepped in with the Great Societies "war on poverty" and things got much worse. The problem has never been exploitation of the poor through inadequate housing. Nobody gets rich running a slum. There are too many problems with dead beat tenants, vandalism and high maintenance costs. The problem has always been the type of people who are content to live at the lowest rung of society. Even when the government provided them a "nice" place to live free of charge, with all sorts of regulations and standards to ensure decent living conditions they find a way to trash it. Back in the days of slums and shacks the poor were occupied working for their next meal and to provide for the children. With public housing and the welfare state the requirement to work has been abolished and the poor are now idle.


Idle hands are the Devils workshop.
