City to start limiting homeless shelter stays for single adult migrants to 60 days: Mayor


The city will start limiting how long migrants can spend in its homeless shelters as it continues struggling to find enough housing for tens of thousands of new arrivals, Mayor Eric Adams announced on Wednesday.

Under the new policy, single adult migrants already living in shelters will be given 60 days to find “alternative” housing, according to City Hall. The time limit will be paired with “intensified” case management aimed at helping migrants find long-term housing by connecting them with friends and family.
