NYC Budget Analysis, 2001Spending for homelessness driven by shelter needs. In the
1980s, the city entered into a number of consent decrees that
established a “right to shelter” for homeless single adults; this
right was later extended to families. DHS is responsible for
complying with these decrees by providing emergency shelter
for anyone who requests it, and who is without other housing
options. In 2001, DHS spent $476 million; this year’s budget
(fiscal year 2002) is currently $531 million—up $34 million
from the amount adopted in June.
