Ben Carson to meet with Mayor de Blasio over NYCHA issues
U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson will meet with the mayor today to discuss the future of the city's housing authority.
On Friday, Secretary Carson said the city must come up with an "acceptable" plan by the end of January to keep the federal government from taking over the city's public housing.
The deadline is Jan. 31.
Last week, Mayor de Blasio promised to speed up $24 billion worth of urgent repairs "to improve the quality of life for people living in the NYCHA buildings.”
