Victor Bach, Artis Wright, Nicole Branca
Summary: The policy brief describes the state of resident participation in New York’s public housing during a critical period of federal policy change from 1996 to 2002, when some resident leaders struggled to develop a strong voice in policy decisions in Washington and at the NYC Housing Authority. Strengths and weaknesses in the resident participation structure are assessed; recommendations are put forward to make participation more effective and more independent of the Authority.
