Mayor Eric Adams and his administration continue to struggle to find housing for the migrants currently in the city's care. Now, officials are turning to public schools as possible solutions.
Meanwhile, a recent study conducted by Win, a large provider of shelter and supportive housing for homeless families in the city, found that a current rule stating that homeless families must wait 90 days before applying for housing vouchers costs the city nearly $30,000 per family.
Advocates say the rule is arbitrary and that speeding up the process would reduce costs for the city and subsequently open up space for asylum seeker families.
Former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who currently serves as the president and CEO of Win, joined NY1 political anchor Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” Tuesday night to discuss housing vouchers and the migrant crisis.
