NYSSHP Cuts Restored
The Network would like to thank Governor Cuomo and the NYS Office of Temporary & Disability Assistance (OTDA) for their commitment to the NYS Supportive Housing Program (NYSSHP) and for restoring all of the NYSSHP programs that had received a 10% cut in 2016 due to budget restrictions. This will go a long way to making sure the nearly 5,000 formerly homeless adults and families currently living in supportive housing receive the services they need to remain stably housed. 

We are grateful for the leadership of Commissioner Sam Roberts, Executive Deputy Commissioner Barbara Guinn, Deputy Commissioner Linda Glassman, Director Rick Umholtz and the entire Bureau of Housing and Support Services staff that made this happen.  

Thank you to all of the Network members who advocated for this program during last year’s budget process. Your advocacy on this issue was critical to seeing this funding restored! For more information, please contact the Network’s Albany office.

Residents of Supportive Housing
Supportive Housing provides our most vulnerable neighbors a life of dignity and support.

Supportive Housing- the innovative model for ending chronic homelessness
Supportive housing had a number of mothers and fathers, all of whom were trying to help the most vulnerable New Yorkers—homeless people, people living with mental illness, the elderly, and those living the most marginalized lives—and who were all, simultaneously, coming to the same conclusion: to make a difference in the lives of the people they cared about, they could no longer just provide services. 

Nine Key Achievements of the NY/NY III Agreement
In November 2005, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Governor George Pataki signed NY/NY III, committing to create 9,000 units of supportive housing for a variety of disabled homeless people in New York City over ten years. The Agreement marked the largest commitment to creating housing for homeless people in the nation's history.

The Culhane Study
