“Cuomo Declares Emergency For NYCHA, Attaches Strings To Funding” By Noah Manshar


“Cuomo’s declaration came after Albany lawmakers passed a 2019 state budget over the weekend that included $250 million for NYCHA, adding to $300 million in funding from two prior budgets.”

“Within 60 days, Mayor Bill de Blasio, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and Danny Barber — the head of the Citywide Council of Presidents, a NYCHA tenant group that’s suing the city — must unanimously appoint an emergency manager to oversee how the money is spent, Cuomo said.”
