Statement on Passage of Supportive Housing Funds in Budget


ALBANY – The Campaign 4 NY/NY Housing today issued the following statement on the passage of the 2017-18 New York State Budget:


“We congratulate Governor Cuomo, Senate Majority Leader Flanagan and Assembly Speaker Heastie for passing a budget that keeps the promise to build the first 6,000 units of supportive housing for the homeless.  They, the members and their staffs should be commended for working tirelessly on behalf of homeless New Yorkers and communities across our state that are struggling to confront an historic housing and homelessness crisis. Because of this budget and their hard work, countless lives will be saved, families restored and communities supported.  We thank them and look forward to getting these units built and people in housing.”
