DFTA has crafted “Plan 2025”, which lays out a blueprint for adding new services, and making
enhancements to or transforming existing services, to respond to the needs of the burgeoning
population of older people.
Covering a 6-month period, this report contains the total number of referrals received by APS, the number of referred individuals who were determined ineligible during the same period, and the reasons individuals were determined ineligible, a general description of the source of the referrals.
This report contains statistics on the number of unsheltered homeless persons. Citywide outreach efforts by HOME-STAT, through which hundreds of highly-trained not-for-profit outreach staff, including licensed social workers, proactively canvass the streets to engage homeless New Yorkers.
Starting next week, the City’s older adults, their caregivers, and nonprofit providers of community services will have the opportunity to voice concerns and suggestions to the New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA) during DFTA’s Annual Plan Summary hearings in each borough.
