Vice President of Recovery and Resilience, New York City Housing Authority
Joy Sinderbrand manages the New York City Housing Authority’s Recovery and Resilience Department. The $3.2 billion program is both repairing lasting damage from Superstorm Sandy and investing in precedent-setting resilience elements protecting structure and infrastructure at 35 developments housing over 60,000 low-income New Yorkers. Her background in major capital projects includes Port Authority of New York and New Jersey efforts to increase capacity at New York’s Penn Station and redevelopment of the World Trade Center. Previously, she worked for Washington Square Partners developing public-private partnerships and for the City of New York at the Department of Transportation and the Office of Management and Budget. She holds a joint Master’s Degree in Public Affairs and Urban & Regional Planning from Princeton University and a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Maryland Honors College. Joy is raising two 4th generation Brooklynites to love infrastructure investment and lets them use power tools solo while insisting Google requires adult supervision.
