Joy Sinderbrand is the Senior Vice President for Capital Programs at the New York City Housing Authority overseeing the project management teams carrying out a $4.5 billion capital program incorporating innovative procurement methods, building materials, construction methods, and technology. Joy initially joined NYCHA in 2016 to implement the largest single grant in FEMA history and the largest federal investment in public housing since its inception. Over $2.5 billion of the $3.2 billion of disaster recovery funding has been invested to protect over 200 multifamily buildings from flooding and power outages.
Last fall, her department released NYCHA’s first Climate Adaptation Plan, outlining a path forward for a 2,500+-building portfolio housing some of New York’s most vulnerable residents. Prior to NYCHA, Joy worked on a variety of large-scale capital projects, including the expansion of Penn Station and the reconstruction of the World Trade Center.
