NYC Civic Leaders for Int 146

As leaders of organizations that serve and represent New York City’s residents and interest groups, we are deeply concerned about the disproportionate impact the City’s economic crisis is having on vulnerable low-income New Yorkers. While City leadership is rightly focused on the crucial issues of public health, education, and business reopening, they must also take steps to ensure that we come out of this crisis as a more just and equitable City, one that supports New Yorkers in need and builds the resilience to overcome future challenges and crises. To that end, we are writing today to seek your support to fix a critical, but broken, tool for combatting homelessness—the CityFHEPS rental voucher program.
