NYC Mayor Adams Says It's His 'Vision’ to Eventually House Migrants in New Yorkers’ Private Homes

Mayor Adams announced religious leaders from fifty places of worship have agreed to start

housing male migrants overnight. The city will pay a nightly rate of $125 to places of worship for each asylum seeker housed. This move is cheaper than putting up a migrant household (ranging from single adults to families with children) in one of the shelter hotels in the city, which currently costs the city $380 per night. Adams called it his “vision” for the next step, after opening “faith-based locales” to migrants.
