Many advocates want to see the city spend less on the temporary response to homelessness and more on the longer --term solutions.
What do you say? What is your reaction to housing costs rising 62% in eight years? If the money is spent for a longer period of time, you are welcome to use 0. 976 billion of the tax to place those family members-
Term solutions like affordable housing or job training programs if you stay in a homeless shelter in New York City for a while, if you live or work nearby, what will it look like, whether it\'s from the city or the state, whether it\'s popular in the community or not, our taxes will eventually be used to pay for the shelter.
It is shocking to see steady growth in housing demand.
This shows that while people need help in the short term to get back on their feet, they need funding for permanent housing and basic necessities in the long run.
This is a problem that the government needs to pay attention.
I think the money would be better spent on building affordable housing and vocational training for those who want to return to the labor market. When and if Mr.

Helen M. , chelsea-the mayor and the governor constantly blame each other on every issue and it\'s really growing-continues to manage the city and state.
Tom in the forest is really disappointing.
New York has so much money to spend on temporary housing.
We need to raise wages, we need to provide housing for veterans who fight for our country, and we need to get these people out of the street.
No one should sleep on the street. ÂJ.
While homelessness continues to get out of control, our vets who serve and fight in our Army account for a large part of the homeless, which is particularly shameful and shocking ---
Not just in New York, but across the country.
Is this how we treat our country\'s heroes? It\'s not just a local issue, it\'s also a national issue that needs to be addressed by Albany, the federal government and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Gretchen is very bad at managing tax spending.
