BROOKLYN - The city's decision to end the Advantage Program due to budget cuts has many Brooklyn tenants wondering where they're going to live next and how they'll pay for it.
The program has provided housing for more than 16,000 formerly homeless residents throughout the city, but officials announced in April that funds had run out.
An injunction filed against the city attempted to keep the program running, but a court ruling found that it was simply a social benefit and reaffirmed the city's right to terminate the program.
Supporters of the program gathered at City Hall to fight for the families that will be affected. Many argued that residents are working, but that their income doesn't pay the rent and the city refuses to increase the minimum wage.
