MFJ Testimony: Greater Oversight of Supportive Housing Needed

MFJ Attorney Sandra Gresl testified at a hearing of the New York City Council’s Committee on General Welfare in support of Intro. 147, which will enable the city to provide greater oversight of supportive housing providers, particularly in monitoring the reasons for admission denials and evictions of tenants. Greater oversight would also enable the city to ensure that tenants with disabilities are receiving proper supports and that there are clear administrative procedures to appeal denials of admission and to ensure that opportunities for corrective action are provided to tenants before commencing an eviction case.
