New York State

The Network advocates on behalf of New York's supportive housing community, to preserve and increase capital, operating and service funding for supportive housing. In addition, the Network also presses for policies that make development and operation easier and more effective. Through its office in Albany, the Network engages in a number of advocacy efforts State-centered every year. We regularly testify at budget and policy hearings, inform and mobilize members and tenants about issues affecting them and meet with elected officials to educate and advocate for supportive housing. Below, you'll find an outline of the Network's core policy priorities for New York State government. You'll also see a list of our recent legislative victories, a sampling of our State government testimonies and a downloadable collection of our advocacy materials.
