The NYC Alliance to Preserve Public Housing, a coalition of housing and New York City resident advocates, sent a letter to the New York City Housing Authority to denounce the Housing Authority's proposals in its fiscal year 2014 draft annual plan. Some of the proposals the NYC Alliance wants to stop include plans to lease land to developers on New York City Housing Authority property and cutting Section 8 vouchers. The group called on concerned individuals to contact the Housing Authority before the July 24 deadline on public comments.

The group also issued a position paper outlining their recommendations to improve the Housing Authority. The NYC Alliance to Preserve Public Housing is part of the Community Service Society of New York.
