Please join us in THANKING the Mayor for his historic pledge.
We are relishing in the Mayor’s commitment, announced last week, to fund the largest contribution to supportive housing in history.
On November 18, Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled an unprecedented investment of 2.6 billion dollars to create 15,000 new units of supportive housing over the next 15 years. Please join us in THANKING him for his historic pledge.
We now look forward to the Governor's proposal matching and extending this commitment, creating a total of 35,000 supportive apartments across New York State: a monumental achievement.
Now is the time to show our support for the Mayor's announcement and to encourage the City Council to pass a resolution calling for a full 35,000 units statewide.
