If you are a community organization or media outlet interested in partnering with NYCHA’s G&S Unit, please contact us about getting in touch. As Resident Green Committees are run by groups of individual residents, their personal information is not published on this site. Interested individuals will be connected through NYCHA.
Inquiries from the media are handled by members of NYCHA’s Department of Communications, who can be contacted at: 212-306-3322 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
