New York City’s homeless population is at a record high. While one could of foretold the influx of asylum seekers in need of shelter, the safety net could have been better equipped to meet the moment.  Join us for a policy discussion on upcoming legislation and other opportunities at the State which could address long-standing deficiencies with New York State’s public benefits, improve access to housing statewide, and expand assistance to all New Yorkers irrespective of their immigration status.

We hope you will participate in our virtual briefing and help us in our efforts.
