Int. No. 146 Support Letter to Speaker of the New York City Council

The 43 undersigned organizations urge you to support Int. No. 146 to increase the CityFHEPS rent levels to the federally established Fair Market Rent. This change will meaningfully widen the door out of shelter for tens of thousands of homeless New Yorkers by significantly expanding the number of neighborhoods and apartments available to homeless families. With this reform, the CityFHEPS program will become an effective tool for addressing New York City’s homelessness crisis—a tool that we desperately need.
