Gov't Does It Best...

Post  News Hawk on Tue Dec 29, 2015 6:50 pm

New York City’s $1.2 billion anti-homelessness campaign isn’t doing enough to get people off the streets, according to a study recently released by the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research.

Out of the Department of Homeless Services’ funding — which dwarfs the budgets of the Department of Parks and Recreation at $450 million, Department of Transportation at $880 million and public libraries at $363 million — just $40 million is allocated toward “outreach, drop-in, and reception services. Around $975 million is used toward maintaining shelters, according to the report.

“Only a small fraction is devoted to outreach efforts focused on moving homeless off the street,” the report reads.

The New York-based conservative think tank said while reliable data on the topic is hard to come by, street homeless are more likely to be individuals affected by some sort of mental illness or drug addiction than sheltered homeless — which is largely comprised of families according to the report.
