The Housing Crisis in New York City
With Section 8 vouchers and subsidized housing under fiscal assault or disappearing altogether, low-income families, disconnected youth and disabled persons are increasingly shut out of decent affordable housing. Government must assume responsibility for its role in the housing business with a re-commitment to long-term subsidy programs that work. If it does not do so, it will increasingly find itself in the homelessness business.
