DiNapoli: Outreach Failure Contributes to Rise in Subway Homeless Population

Posted to Applied Web NY on Thu, 01/16/2020 - 11:22

Despite spending about $36 million to reduce the subway homeless population, the homeless situation in the subways has grown significantly worse, in part because the city’s Department of Homeless Services (DHS) has neglected to monitor a non-profit that has repeatedly failed to conduct outreach it was hired for, according to an audit released today by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.
