A report released by Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein and New York City Councilman Ritchie Torres on Thursday found the city’s public housing units are in dire need of repair, with problems ranging from mold on the walls, leaking ceilings and peeling paint.

“We cannot sit back while damage is done to our best affordable housing stock,” Klein said in a statement. “That is why we are proposing the NYCHA 2020 Public Housing Revitalization Plan, which would increase funding to provide safe, healthy conditions to residents, while reforming NYCHA’s operations and increasing transparency. NYCHA’s system may be broken, but we are ready to fix it.”

The report found buildings under the auspices of the New York City Housing Authority are in a state of dangerous disrepair. A survey found 63 percent of residents reported that something is damaged or broken in their unit, including falling ceilings in bathrooms and kitchens as well as broken intercoms. Half of the tenants surveyed said they have deal with a broken intercom for more than five years.

Most residents — 51 percent — said they feel unsafe in their building given the conditions.

A whopping 60 percent of residents say mold is a current or past issue, with nearly 19 percent saying their complaints are never responded to.

And if tenants call for help, 79 percent of residents say they receive incorrect information.

Despite having $100 million NYCHA repairs allocated in the budget, the lawmakers say more work is needed to fix the conditions. The report says surplus funding from the Batter Park City Authority should be dedicated to NYCHA, which would bring $400 million over the next decade.

Klein also wants to strengthen transparency at NYCHA by giving the city Council oversight of the entity.
