  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Section 459-b of the social services law, as added by chap-
ter 169 of the laws of 1994, is amended to read as follows:
  S 459-b. Residential services for victims  of  domestic  violence.  In
accordance with section one hundred thirty-one-u of this chapter and the
regulations  of the [department] OFFICE OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES,
a social services district shall offer and provide necessary and  avail-
able  emergency shelter and services FOR UP TO NINETY DAYS at a residen-
tial program for victims of domestic violence to a  victim  of  domestic
violence who was residing in the social services district at the time of
the alleged domestic violence whether or not such victim is eligible for
public  assistance;  PROVIDED,  HOWEVER,  THAT SUCH LAW, RULES AND REGU-
LATIONS SHALL PERMIT UP TO TWO EXTENSIONS OF UP TO  FORTY-FIVE  DAYS  OF
NECESSARY  AND AVAILABLE EMERGENCY SHELTER AND SERVICES AT A RESIDENTIAL
PROGRAM FOR VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IF NEITHER  THE  RESIDENT,  THE
SOCIAL  SERVICES  DISTRICT NOR THE RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM IS ABLE TO SECURE
ALTERNATIVE HOUSING, AS DEFINED BY REGULATION, FOR THE RESIDENT AND SUCH
HOUSING IS NECESSARY.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day  after  it  shall
have  become  a  law;  provided, however, that effective immediately the
commissioner of the office of children and family services is authorized
and directed to promulgate such rules and regulations as he or she deems
necessary to implement the provisions of  this  act  on  or  before  its
effective date.
