NYCHA Tenant's Grandson Can't Get Apartment After Tenant Dies

LVT Number: #29766

NYCHA tenant's grandson requested succession rights after tenant died in 2013. NYCHA ruled against the grandson, who filed an Article 78 court appeal. The court ruled against the grandson. Tenant had asked NYCHA in 2009 to add the grandson to her household. She claimed that the grandson had moved in to take care of her. But NYCHA neither granted nor denied that application and tenant didn't follow up. Tenant also never listed the grandson on her income affidavits before she died.
