Take Action: Urge the NYS Assembly to Increase the Personal Needs Allowance for Homeless New Yorkers!

New Yorkers sleeping in shelters receive as little as $22.50 two times per month as a personal needs allowance. The allowance is supposed to help them afford essentials like toiletries, transportation, medication, and clothes, but this amount hasn’t been raised in decades. 

The New York State Assembly can change this by passing A.8061 and increasing the personal needs allowance for homeless New Yorkers!
