Adams admin looking to expand 30-day migrant shelter cap for single adults to DHS-run facilities: official

Mayor Eric Adams is planning to expand a 30-day shelter stay cap for single adult migrants to those living in facilities run by the Department of Homeless Services (DHS), a top administration official said Monday.

Department of Social Services (DSS) Commissioner Molly Waso Park said the administration will now be applying the shelter stay limit, which is currently in place for single adults living in shelters operated by other city agencies, to facilities run by her department, which oversees DHS. The other agencies running migrant shelters include city Emergency Management (NYSEM), Health + Hospitals (H+H) and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).
