Mayor announces $187 million for supportive housing in the Bronx and city

City officials say they want to move away from the ?band-aid? approach of finding temporary housing for Bronx and city homeless people. On Friday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R-NY) announced that $187 million will be added to the Department of Housing Preservation and Development?s 10-year capital plan to build supportive housing. Supportive housing offers homes to people with addiction, substance abuse and mental problems. The mayor says, unfortunately a large amount of homeless people fall into these categories. A supportive housing site will be opening in the Bronx Tuesday at the Jericho West Tremont residence.
