In our first briefing, HSU explained the role that shelter plays in stabilizing households, but so many people in New York experience homelessness because of insufficient access to permanent housing. This briefing will explore how to expand eligibility to housing resources, improve access to existing housing, and better understand how “feeder” systems contribute to people entering DHS shelters.
