Arvind Sohoni, Executive Vice President of Strategy and Innovation at the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), will be speaking on the history of public housing in New York.

Sohoni oversees the agency’s Transformation effort—including the restructuring of the Authority and exploration of new business models to sustain the core mission of housing low-income New Yorkers. He also works closely with partners at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, and an appointed Federal Monitor to implement the terms of a 2019 regulatory agreement. He is an advocate for resident decision-making and has led several reforms to decentralize the agency to local control that better serves resident needs.
