COVID-19 Policy Updates

The Coalition for the Homeless is continually monitoring the City’s response to the outbreak and working to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

Our report, “COVID-19 and Homelessness in New York City: Pandemic Pandemonium for New Yorkers Without Homes,” outlines the disproportionate impacts of the pandemic on homeless New Yorkers, provides a look at government responses in the early months of the crisis, and recommends urgent actions to support homeless New Yorkers.

Take Action

Years into the pandemic, the City and State are still failing to adequately protect homeless New Yorkers and prevent homelessness. We continue to advocate tirelessly for investments in proven, cost-effective solutions to homelessness.
