BDS Testimony before The New York City Human Resources Administration regarding CityFHEPS Program Eligibility Amendments

Permanent affordable housing is the foundation many New Yorkers, including the people we serve, need to find stability in their lives. Stable housing helps our clients favorably resolve their criminal cases and reunite with their children after ACS involvement, maintain jobs and allow children to remain in school. Now is the moment, when the housing and homelessness crisis is deepening, to implement changes that will ensure CityFHEPS vouchers are a true path to permanent housing. Vouchers are one important path to stable housing for many New Yorkers if key changes are made to strengthen the program. We urge HRA to strongly consider our recommendations.
