Kavanagh Tours Public Housing with HUD Deputy Secretary and City Housing Chair

June 19, 2009

On June 19, 2009, Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh joined United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Deputy Secretary Ronald Sims, New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) Chair John Rhea, State Senator Daniel Squadron, NYCHA Board Member Margarita Lopez, and community residents for a tour of parts of two NYCHA developments located in Assemblymember Kavanagh’s district: Lower East Side II and Lillian Wald Houses. The tour gave the officials an opportunity to see first hand how funds from certain Federal programs are being spent in our community, including buildings receiving capital funding for new roofs and security cameras through programs administered by HUD.
