New York City

Since our founding in 1990, we have been at the forefront of advocacy efforts to ensure that New York City provides housing and related supportive services to low-income and homeless New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. We closely track the city agency charged with overseeing subsidies for poor New Yorkers with AIDS, the HIV/AIDS Services Administration (HASA), and we push for improvements and expansion of HASA services.

Every year, we doggedly lobby the mayor and city council to make the best funding decisions around HIV prevention and care, especially for those most at-risk: drug users, transgender people, people of color, the poor, the homeless, and those with mental illnesses. Sometimes our lobbying takes the form of rallies, protests, and creative civil disobedience actions.
