New York City Comptroller Brad Lander announced the launch of a new online form for individuals looking to share information regarding the impact of the city’s shelter limits on asylum seekers.
In October, the Adams Administration implemented a policy that puts a 60-day limit on migrants residing in NYC shelters, prompting the comptroller to conduct a formal investigation.
Lander said that his office made the decision to establish the online form as a way of collecting stories and insights that describe the human effects as a result of the city’s shelter policy, thus providing crucial information to aid in the investigation.
The online form is open to all individuals, advocacy groups, and community organizations. According to Lander, the information in the form will not be voluntarily disclosed, nor will any identifying information be included in any published reports.
