Bill would boost domestic violence victims seeking NYCHA housing

December 15, 2014
A state pol announced legislation Monday to give domestic violence victims the same chance to get into NYCHA housing that homeless families have.
     The city launched a plan earlier this year to give 750 homeless families a fast track to NYCHA apartments - but it also let them jump ahead of domestic violence victims on the housing authority’s huge waiting list, as the Daily News revealed.
     The bill to be introduced by state Sen. Jeff Klein would give victims exiting domestic violence shelters equal priority with homeless families.
