On the same evening as the community meeting, a member of Fight For NYCHA made a presentation, seeking support for a budget/funding resolution before the Housing Committee of Manhattan Community Board 11. The Housing Committee refrained from voting on the draft resolution, but the Housing Committee voted to oppose privatisation of public housing.

The next evening, members of Fulton Houses testified before the full meeting of Manhattan Community Board 4. It was revealed that CB4 had sent a letter to Mayor Bill de Blasio (D-New York City) and Kathyrn Garcia, the interim CEO of the New York Housing Authority (“NYCHA”), opposing demolition at Fulton Houses.
