NEW YORK - The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) has announced a large scale-back in its spending and a continuation of its hiring freeze due to federal funding cuts.

NYCHA workers may face layoffs and funding for the Section 8 program will decrease, which could mean higher rent for tenants. Community and senior centers also face a decrease in funding and possible closure.

Despite a cut in budget, the NYCHA vows to keep their "action plan" in place to remain up-to-date on work orders and building maintenance.
