NYAPRS Note: Our Campaign 4 NY/NY Housing needs your help to press Governor Cuomo and the Legislature to firm commitment to expand supportive housing! Please weigh in today at http://www.nynycampaign.org/take-action#/8/!
We need your help to encourage the Governor and the Legislature to sign an Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for new supportive housing!
The final 2016-17 State budget included $2 billion to be used to develop 6,000 units of Supportive Housing state-wide over the next five years – the initial investment towards the Governor’s promise of 20,000 new units. However, the final budget included language that requires the Governor and Legislature to reach a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for how this money would be spent.
The CAMPAIGN 4 NY/NY HOUSING is having an email campaign to push the Governor and Legislature to sign an MOU so the 6,000 new Supportive Housing units can be developed.
All it takes is 4 steps!
