The Supportive Housing Network of New York and about 130 groups assembled outside City Hall yesterday to rally for a new agreement to build supportive housing for New York City’s homeless population.

The current 10-year housing agreement, titled New York/NewYork III, launched in 2005 and is set to expire next year. The city and the state had agreed to the goal of establishing roughly 9,000 supportive housing units for households in which a member has severe mental illness or other crippling medical conditions, Capital New York reported.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has said in his affordable-housing plan that the city will honor the agreement through to its expiration, and that more needs to be done.

The groups at the rally urged for the new agreement to set the goal of creating 30,000 supportive housing units. [Capital NY]Mark Maurer
