@NYCHRA singles me out for breach of contract

December 31, 2015

I still live in a DHS shelter, but HRA has opted not to pay for my January storage, in violation of its stated policies, on the grounds that my cash assistance case has been closed because I now have a job and am not attending the back to work program.

    POLICY BULLETIN #14-100-OPE
    STORAGE FEE NOTICES
    Date:
    September 23, 2014
    Subtopic(s):
    Storage Fees
    This procedure can
    now be accessed on the
    FIAweb.
    The purpose of this policy bulletin is to inform staff of the storage fee
    notices associated with the new automated process for the payment
    of storage fees on behalf of individuals/families that reside in
    Department of Homeless Services (DHS) shelters.
    Effective October 1, 2014, the Agency will implement the automated
    process to systematically pay storage fees (Issuance Code 21) to
    storage vendors for households as long as the household resides in
    a DHS shelter.
    Management Information Systems (MIS) will conduct a file match
    with DHS to identify individuals or families who reside in participating
    homeless shelters. Once those households have been identified,
    MIS will pass a file to the Welfare Management System (WMS) on a
    monthly basis for the storage fees to be automatically paid to the
    storage vendor.
    The unique authorization number associated with the automated
    storage fee payment is 335013.
    The following notices have been created and will be systematically
    sent to the appropriate parties:
    Notice to Household of Storage Fee Payment to Vendor (FIA
    1127) this notice informs the household that the agency has
    agreed to pay the storage fee payment on their behalf as long as
    they reside in a DHS shelter.
    Notice to Household of Storage Fee Payment Termination (FIA
    1127a) this notice informs the household that their storage fee
    payment is being terminated because they no longer reside in a
    DHS shelter.
  • PB #14-100-OPE
    FIA Policy, Procedures, and Training 2 Office of Procedures
    Notice to Vendor of Storage Fee Payment (FIA1127b) this
    notice informs the storage vendor that the agency will pay the
    storage fee on behalf of the household. This is not a monthly
    notice and will be sent once (at the beginning of the payment
    arrangement).
    Notice to Vendor of Storage Fee Payment Termination (FIA
    1127c) this notice informs the storage vendor that the agency
    will no longer pay the storage fee on behalf of the household.
