Today, NYHC submitted comments to HUD on its dangerous proposed rule regarding the Verification of Eligible Status of mixed income HUD-Assisted families. As it is NYHC’s mission is to advance local, state and federal policies to support the development and preservation of decent and affordable housing for all New Yorkers, we are deeply concerned that this proposed rule, if implemented, would cause deleterious and cruel family separations and increased housing instability and homelessness among vulnerable populations not just in New York but across the nation. We urge the rule to be withdrawn in its entirety, and that HUD’s long-standing regulations remain in effect. See NYHC’s submitted comment here.
