New York: Helping Homeless Families

In New York, we're helping homeless families secure permanent, affordable homes. Through our partnership with the city of New York and local housing and shelter providers, we streamlined the way that homeless families obtain affordable housing, making it more efficient for families, public agencies and housing partners. We ensured that 100 percent of new units intended for the homeless were leased to families in shelter, despite the loss of vouchers through sequestration. In only 100 days, we helped 53 families secure homes without the use of subsidies, with more placements ongoing.
