NYCHA residents are fighting back against a federal proposal that would dramatically raise their rent. Resident Karen Blondel said she wouldn't make it if she didn't get rent help from the federal government. "I pay $1,100 a month, but that doesn't leave me anything for groceries," Blondel said. Now paying that rent may get harder for Blondel and hundreds of thousands of others who get federal help through HUD in NYC.
