The Board of the New York City Housing Authority has announced that NYCHA will begin instituting rent adjustments to residents in developments severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy. These rent abatement measures mean that for any days of the month in which residents were without essential services (electric, elevators, heat or water) as a result of Hurricane Sandy storm damage, they will be issued a rent credit.
Rent credits will be included in the January 2013 rent bill. NYCHA asks that residents continue to pay their normal rents until the credits are reflected on their rent bill. NYCHA residents will receive additional information in their December rent bill.
