BROOKLYN - The New York City Housing Authority is easing up on its policies and starting next month, 150 people just released from prison will be allowed to live in NYCHA buildings.

The two-year-pilot program is designed to help inmates adjust back to life in society. NYCHA will also provide the men and women with social services, such as help in finding employment.

The program will provide housing to inmates released in the last 18 months, or those about to be released. NYCHA will be one of the first public housing agencies in the country to allow recently released prisoners to live in its buildings.
