        Introduced  by  Sens.  BAILEY, ADDABBO, KRUEGER, MANNION, MYRIE, RIVERA,

        AN ACT to amend the public housing  law,  in  relation  to  establishing
          uniform waiting list priorities for domestic violence survivors apply-
          ing for public housing
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. The public housing law is amended by adding a  new  section
     2  62 to read as follows:
     3    §  62.  Waiting  list  priorities; domestic violence. 1. Where a local
     4  housing authority establishes applicant  preferences  on  their  waiting
     5  list,  applicants who are victims of domestic violence shall receive the
     6  same priority as other disenfranchised populations, such  as  the  disa-
     7  bled,  the  elderly  and  the  homeless,  where  the  victim of domestic
     8  violence:
     9    (a) will continue to suffer  from  domestic  violence  if  he  or  she
    10  continues to live in current residence; or
    11    (b)  has left the residence due to domestic violence and is not living
    12  in standard permanent replacement housing.
    13    2. For the purposes of this section, victim of domestic violence shall
    14  have the same meaning as defined in section four hundred fifty-nine-a of
    15  the social services law.
    16    3. For applicants on the waiting list with the same preference status,
    17  local public housing authorities shall select applicants using the  date
    18  and time of application, giving priority to applications in the order of
    19  which they are received.
    20    §  2.  This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to local
    21  housing authorities upon the addition  of  any  person  to  any  of  the
    22  authority's waiting lists.

         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD00206-01-3
