2022 Policy Symposium: Statewide opportunities to prevent and end homelessness

New York City’s homeless population is at a record high. While no one could have foretold the influx of asylum seekers in need of shelter, the safety net could have been better equipped to meet the moment. Watch elected officials and experts in the field discuss legislative solutions that could address longstanding deficiencies with New York State’s public benefits, improve access to housing statewide, and expand assistance to all New Yorkers regardless of their immigration status
