BILL NUMBER:S2126

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the social services law, in relation to requiring the provision
of kitchen facilities in
certain locations that temporarily house homeless individuals or accept
certain government subsidies
outside of the city of New York

PURPOSE: Requires kitchen facilities in locations
that temporarily
house homeless individuals or accept government subsidies to house
such individuals outside of the City of New York.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 20 of the social
services law is
amended by adding a new subdivision 9 providing for the Office of
Temporary and disability Assistance promulgation and implementation
of rules and regulations that shall be necessary to require kitchen
facilities in locations that temporarily house homeless individuals
or accept government subsidies to house such individuals, located
outside of the City of New York,

JUSTIFICATION:
The Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance
administers an array of programs to address homelessness in New York
State. However, there may be instances where homeless individuals
must be placed in a temporary shelter until a more permanent place
can be found. Many temporary facilities like hotels or motels may not
be equipped with on-site kitchen facilities, so they are unable to
provide dining services. Accordingly, many individuals are forced to
fend for themselves which could potentially result in malnutrition
and hunger.

The legislation is necessary to address this problem by requiring the
Office of Temporary and disability Assistance to promulgate rules and
regulations pertaining to mandatory kitchen facilities located in
facilities that temporarily house homeless individuals or accept
government subsidies to house such individuals outside the City of
New York.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011-12: A.1804/S.1938
2009-10: A.9887/S.6812
2005-06: A.1101/S.585
2003-04: A.3276/S.1534
2002: A.10949/S.7610

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
