Testimony of Win (formerly Women In Need, Inc.) for the New York City Council Committee on General Welfare in Support of Intro 704

Thank you to Chair Ayala and to the esteemed members of the Committee on General Welfare for the opportunity to offer testimony. We would like to express our strong support for Intro 704, which would amend the City’s administrative code to require that the Human Resources Administration (HRA) provide landlords the option to accept rental assistance payments via an electronic transfer. Thank you to Council Member Abreu for introducing this important bill.
