The Network's federal advocacy efforts focus on the budget and policy priorities critical to supportive housing in New York State. Our overall goal is to increase supportive housing production and improve the legislative and regulatory environment for our members to do their best work in service of the homeless and formerly homeless.
Federal Advocacy and Policy Priorities
The Network places special emphasis on programs funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), particularly the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Program. In support of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness’ Strategic Plan to End Homelessness, the Network also advocates for programs in other federal agencies.
The Network also organizes several legislative advocacy days in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with our national partners, which include the National Alliance to End Homelessness, the National Low Income Housing Coalition and the Corporation for Supportive Housing.
Our federal policy priorities are driven by our members. Reach out to us!
