16-402: Single Adult Permanent Housing Referral Procedure

The Department of Homeless Services (DHS) provides temporary emergency shelter to homeless New York City residents and does so in accordance with State and local law and implementing regulations with the goal of moving shelter residents back into permanent housing in the community as soon as possible. The Single Adult Permanent Housing Referral Procedure (16-402) instructs DHS Single Adult shelter staff at directly-operated or contracted shelters and Outreach Teams at all homeless programs for single adults to refrain from referring clients to permanent housing in buildings that meet one or more of the criteria set forth in Title 31, Chapter 2 or the Rules of the City of New York ("Single Adult Referral Rule"), and to penalize programs that make such referrals.
