Assemblywoman Rosenthal and Senator Kavanagh wrote an op-ed in the Daily News urging the Governor to sign A8009/S6573 to raise state FHEPS.
This bill was passed by the legislature earlier this year and would go a long way at making this voucher more effective. Once enacted, the bill would permanently raise the amount of rental assistance available from the Family Homelessness and Eviction Prevention Supplement (FHEPS) program to enable families to lease apartments at rents up to the full fair market rent.
Please promote the article as widely as possible and we’d greatly appreciate it if you could post the below sample tweets this week. You could also send the article to Willow Baer (email@example.com) in the governor’s office, letting her know of your support for this.
