Several New York City agencies are holding contract public hearings on Sept. 12. The Human Resources Administration has 30 proposed contracts, mostly related to legal services for vulnerable populations. The city Department of Homeless Services has a proposed $40.8 million contract with Black Veterans for Social Justice to develop and operate stand-alone transitional housing for homeless single adults, in addition to four other proposed contracts for case management services. The city Department of Health and Mental Hygiene posted a notice for a hearing over a proposed $3.6 million contract with Fund for Public Health In New York to help the department’s fundraising efforts

The Human Resources Administration also intends to enter a negotiated acquisition extension with the Corporation for Supportive Housing to act as a liaison to advocacy groups on the development and implementation of the coordinated assessment and placement system.

“I’ll be working with our marketing team or on social media to make sure our visibility is as broad as it can be,” he told the paper. “How do I find more support? How do I get to a place where this company is sustainable? I get yelled at a little for having the laptop at the table.”

 

Nursing, psychiatric and home health aides would benefit most from the implementation of the proposed Working Families Tax Relief Act in New York, according to a recent analysis. The data from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities also found that, in the state,  cashiers, retail salespeople and janitors would also be positively impacted by such a law. The act would expand the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit for low- and middle-income families – a measure supported by several nonprofits, including FPWA.

 

Two nonprofits have partnered to offer educational programs on urban ecology for Long Island City schools.

The curriculum includes learning about plants, animals and water and soil quality. Funding from the New York City Environmental Fund and the New York State Department of Conservation supported the project.
