MOLD IS HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH AND THE HEALTH OF YOUR FAMILY!
REPORT YOUR MOLD TODAY!
Red Hook Initiative is working to track Mold Complaints to NYCHA. Come to RHI at 767 HICKS ST. TO REPORT YOUR MOLD ISSUE!
ALISA PIZARRO 718-858-6782 OR firstname.lastname@example.org
Mold exposure can cause headaches, sinus
congestion, shortness of breath, skin irritation,
permanent respiratory problems, and chronic fatigue
syndrome. In addition to aggravating conditions
associated with asthma, studies have established that
mold exposure can be a contributing factor in
the development of asthma. Exposure to large
quantities of any kind of indoor mold during a
baby’s first year of life has been demonstrated to
increase the risk of asthma.
The Trump Administration's proposed cuts to HUD will cut NYCHA's budget $75 million for FY 2017 and stand to cut up to $350 million for FY 2018 based on the $6 Billion cut proposal. The cuts will mean a loss to public housing across the country as well as losses for senior services, Section 8 vouchers, and affordable housing programs
A group of community stakeholders including NYCHA resident leadership, PAVE, PS15, the Justice Center, the South West Brooklyn Tenant's Union, Carroll Gardens Association, local electeds, and others planned a community forum on this issue and to mobilize for a citywide action on April 20th.
So come join us and learn how you can take actions to fight the cuts!
