Policy Priorities

The Network advocates for public policy positions that advance the growth and effectiveness of supportive housing. State advocacy efforts are aimed at affecting policy and budget decisions that promote and protect supportive housing in New York State.

The Network is currently engaging in advocacy on the 2016 State budget. 

In addition, the Network works full-time to achieve the following policy outcomes in Albany:

Preserve and protect supportive housing operations and service funds

In order to ensure tenants continue to receive the services they need to remain stably housed, the Network works with executive and state agency staff and elected officials to maintain and expand operation and service funding levels.

Increase capital commitments to meet the supportive housing need in New York State

The Network works with state officials to increase the number of supportive housing units to a level that meets the need in New York State.
