Adopted rule summary:

Over the last decade, rents in NYC have risen precipitously, and the stock of low-rent housing has dropped to dismally low levels. Expanding the pool of affordable units that New York City voucher holders can shop for will allow more households currently in shelter to be stably housed. This change to the CityFHEPS rules provides additional housing mobility for voucher holders, giving them greater control over where they choose to move, live and work.
