PROPOSED SETTLEMENT ABOUT EA FAMILY SHELTER PROGRAM
March 3, 2023
GBLS and Ropes & Gray sued the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) about problems in the EA family shelter program. We negotiated for more than 2 years. We finally have a proposed settlement agreement. The court has to decide whether to approve the settlement. The court will hold a hearing on March 28, 2023.
Have you applied for EA shelter or been in EA shelter at any time since December 9, 2016? If so, you have a right to tell the court if you disagree with the proposed settlement. You need to send your objection to GBLS and to the court by March 20, 2023. For more information, visit our settlement website at https://masheltersettlement.com/
