NYCHA residents can use new digital tools on the NYCHA website to track NYCHA’s progress on repairs and construction.
- Outages Dashboard: The improved “Outages Dashboard,” which tracks heat and hot water outages, is automatically updated multiple times each day. Visitors to the site will now have the same information NYCHA has about when an outage began, how many buildings and apartments are affected, when service is restored, and how long it took to resolve the issue. Visit http://on.nyc.gov/outages to view the Outages Dashboard.
- Capital Tracker: Follow the progress of more than $1 billion in new construction (not including Sandy Recovery projects) across the five boroughs on a map that outlines every project by development. Individual project awards are posted online and updated regularly, allowing any resident or member of the public to learn more about current and planned capital projects, including project scope, funding amount and source, status of project, and project start and end date. View the new Capital Tracker here.
- Energy & Sustainability Map: This new map provides detailed information on several programs under the NextGeneration NYCHA Sustainability Agenda, including Energy Performance Contracts, Weatherization, and the DEP/NYCHA Green Infrastructure Program. View the Energy & Sustainability map here.
“The tools we are launching are the latest in a series of steps we have taken to improve residents’ and other stakeholders’ access to information and improve accountability,” said NYCHA Chair and CEO Shola Olatoye. “We take our responsibility to inform and engage the public seriously. We will continue to identify areas where we can continue to make NYCHA more transparent.”
