NYC May End Hotel Program for Hurricane Sandy Evacuees

The money is running out

About 350 homeless Superstorm Sandy evacuees who have been sleeping in New York City-funded hotel rooms for nearly a year may be forced to check out for good.

Lawyers for the city argued in Manhattan's state Supreme Court this week that the program must end Monday. That's when the Federal Emergency Management Agency says it will stop reimbursing the city for the program.
