Single room occupancy support services program
Social Services (SOS) CHAPTER 55, ARTICLE 2-A, TITLE 2
§ 45-a. Single room occupancy support services program. There is
hereby established under the administration of the commissioner a single
room occupancy support services program, to provide financial
assistance, subject to limitations stated in appropriations therefor, in
the form of grants, to eligible applicants for eligible costs of
services to assist eligible residents of single room occupancy units to
live independently. The commissioner, subject to the approval of the
director of the budget and within amounts appropriated therefor, shall
request proposals from local social services districts for funds to
support grants made pursuant to this title. Copies of such requests for
proposals shall be simultaneously distributed to eligible applicants
known to the commissioner and the availability of such proposals shall
be publicized by the department. Local social services districts will be
chosen competitively based upon such proposals for funding. Criteria to
be used by the commissioner in awarding funding among local social
services districts shall include but not be limited to the anticipated
need for single room occupancy units within each district; the ability
of the local social services district to properly supervise the single
room occupancy support services program; and the appropriateness of the
support services for the population to be served.
