Sources Confirm Arrests & Ongoing Investigation Into NYCHA Kickback Scheme

When: Monday, August 13, 2018

NYCHA is BACK in the news.... From Kings County Politics.com: Arrests have already been made and there is an ongoing investigation into a massive kickback scheme involving New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) jobs to repair Superstorm Sandy damage, according to sources with knowledge of the investigation. KCP first reported the kickback scheme last Friday as happening in Coney Island, but has learned since it is a citywide investigation involving construction companies and nefarious characters known on the street as “the coalition,” getting low-income individuals on NYCHA job sites at prevailing wages for kickback “donations.” Sources say the city’s Department of Investigation (DOI) is involved in the investigation. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is also looking through several complaints regarding the investigation. Read full article here...
