The campaign is calling on Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio to negotiate a new City-State agreement to create 30,000 units of supportive housing for individuals and families with special needs over the next ten years.
As New York City experiences record high levels of homelessness, the highest since the Great Depression, we need the State and City to work together to expand the supply of supportive housing for individuals and families with disabilities or other barriers. Supportive housing has continually proven to be the most successful and cost-effective solution to ending homelessness for the most vulnerable New Yorkers.
Previous City-State agreements have historically resulted in improved health and housing outcomes for homeless individuals and families living with disabilities, while saving taxpayer dollars otherwise spent on expensive institutional care. But there aren’t enough units available to meet the record need, and the current supportive housing agreement between the City and the State, “New York/New York III,” ends next year.
