A $605 million investment has been allotted to make repairs at New York City Housing Authority complexes across the northwest part of the Bronx.  
For residents like Ralph and his grandmother, who have lived at 228 West Tremont Ave. for over 20 years, repairs to their building have been a long time coming. He says that one of the biggest problems is a constantly broken elevator.  
“She has a hard time, especially coming with groceries,” said Ralph. “There’s been times when she’s had to ask neighbors to help her go up the stairs, five flights, with groceries.” 
The money will be going towards 14 different buildings across the Bronx. NYCHA says that the repairs will help over 3,000 tenants through the city’s Permanent Affordability Commitment Together program.
Residents can expect things like new floors, upgraded kitchens and general repairs to improve quality of life.  
Here’s a list of the NYCHA locations in the Bronx that will be receiving some of the investment:  
Bailey Avenue-West 193rd Street  East 180th Street-Monterey Avenue  Fort Independence Street-Heath Avenue  Harrison Avenue Rehab A and B, Twin Parks East  University Avenue Rehab  West Tremont Avenue-Sedgwick Avenue Area
