Katie Lorah and Rasmia Kirmani-Frye launched Ideas Marketplace, an online crowdfunding platform to fund NYCHA sustainability initiatives.

 

“We’ve been looking to partner with NYCHA for years, so it’s good it got off the ground.” – Katie Lorah

“You gotta start somewhere. This was written into the sustainability plan and that’s a publicly released document that the Authority is then accountable to. But if this is a model and a process that is successful, there is no reason to keep it limited to sustainability.” – Rasmia Kirmani-Frye
