Homelessness in upstate

Posted by Matt Ryan on



The number of homeless New Yorkers seems to be on the rise, so much so that earlier this year a group of millionaires petitioned the state government to raise their taxes permanently from 7.65% to nearly 10% to aid those living in poverty.

Most of the funding that focuses on homelessness is aimed at New York City where over 100,000 people are without permanent shelter. See how one man in Ithaca is trying to make a big impact on homelessness in upstate one tiny house at a time.

Also, at our Reporters Roundtable, we discuss sticking points for lawmakers in budget negotiations.
