Move in the right direction
The city updated the process for developers submitting proposals to build homeless shelters.
One example: The old system asked for RFP’s for generic homeless shelters, whereas now the application must specify its specific use, according to Crain’s. Shelters designed for adults are advised to include medical services and those built for children should have educational components.
By the numbers: The Mayor has pledged to build 90 shelters by 2022. There are still an additional 66 sites to be selected.
