On the 4th anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, we are shifting our focus to a long standing issue highlighted by the storm, the impact of mold on public housing residents in Red Hook. While Sandy brought to light mold problems in deteriorating NYCHA buildings, exposure to mold and its harmful effect on health have plagued residents in Red Hook Houses for years. We are calling for immediate and long term solutions.

With the support of resident led research and conversations with nearly 150 community members attending input sessions, we released a report in 2016 entitled: The Impact of Mold on Red Hook NYCHA Tenants: A Health Crisis in Public Housing. Read our Press Release here.
