RUPCO is one of many New York State organizations ready to fulfill Governor Cuomo’s call for 1200 new units of supportive housing. These apartments benefit the disabled, veterans, and our most vulnerable neighbors, by helping them live independently and by providing a network of supportive services as part of their living arrangements.
Give Housing a Voice by joining us, the Supportive Housing Network of New York, and the Campaign 4 NY/NY Housing by calling the Governor’s Office today 518-474-1041. SHNNY has provided a quick script for you below — here’s what to do:
* Call-In to Governor’s Office TODAY to encourage the final push for $1-billion for supportive housing
* Call 518-474-1041. It is a recorded number which gives options.
* Press “1” immediately and leave a message. Otherwise you will have to listen to the menu of options.
* Message to Leave: Hello, my name is [XXXX] and I live in [XXXX]. I am calling to urge Governor Cuomo to keep his promise to release funds for the first 6,000 units of supportive housing for the homeless in this year’s budget. The Senate, the Assembly and the Governor have now all said that $1 billion is required to fund the first 6,000 supportive housing units. With the homeless crisis at an all-time high, we need Governor Cuomo to prioritize this issue and get the job done!
The Governor is engaged in final budget negotiations and your call today is important to keep attention on the supportive housing plan. Your call matters. Ask a friend to make a call, too.
