The Real Affordability for All (RAFA) Coalition forwarded this letter to Mayor de Blasio urging him to make several strategic, long-range budget commitments to NYCHA and its residents. To date, the letter is signed by the Citywide Council of Presidents (CCOP) and 32 public housing resident associations. In addition, a wide array of advocacy, community, and labor organizations have added their names to the letter. We expect the list to grow in the coming weeks.
