Testimony of Christine C. Quinn in Support of Int. No. 146

Good afternoon Chairs Levin and Eugene and members of the General Welfare and Civil and Human Rights Committees. I am Christine Quinn, the President and CEO of Win, the largest provider of shelter and services to families with children in New York City. I am here today to urge you to pass Intro. No. 146, which would peg the city’s rental voucher values to the Fair Market Rent. We cannot address the homelessness crisis we are facing in New York City if we don’t have the right resources and tools at our disposal.
