“We’re relieved the Courts have stopped the Bloomberg Administration from implementing its misguided plan to end the City’s hotel program for Sandy evacuees. Today’s ruling will ensure that the hundreds of families still in hotels are able to transition into permanent housing without further displacement into homeless shelters.
