Order Reprints...

Three New York City Housing Authority community centers will be renovated and restored to their communities using $22 million in capital funding that was shifted from the NYPD to NYCHA in the Fiscal Year 2021 Adopted Budget. A fourth center will receive expense funding for programming.
“A strong community starts with a safe place to gather,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “In June, we committed to reinvesting NYPD funds in youth and social services, and this $22 million in funding is a big step forward for NYCHA families and all New Yorkers.”

The city will use $22 million of NYPD capital funding to renovate and open three NYCHA community centers. They include Monroe in the Bronx, Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn and Wagner in Northern Manhattan.

A fourth NYCHA community center, Ocean Bay in Queens, will receive expense funding for programming provided by the Department of Youth and Community Development.
