NYC secretly exports homeless to Hawaii and other states without telling receiving pols

New York City generously shares its homeless crisis with every corner of America.

From the tropical shores of Honolulu and Puerto Rico, to the badlands of Utah and backwaters of Louisiana, the Big Apple has sent local homeless families to 373 cities across the country with a full year of rent in their pockets as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “Special One-Time Assistance Program.” Usually, the receiving city knows nothing about it.

City taxpayers have spent $89 million on rent alone since the program’s August 2017 inception to export 5,074 homeless families — 12,482 individuals — to places as close as Newark and as far as the South Pacific, according to Department of Homeless Services data obtained by The Post. Families who once lived in city shelters decamped to 32 states and Puerto Rico.

The city also paid travel expenses, through a separate taxpayer-funded program called Project Reconnect, but would not divulge how much it spent. A Friday flight to Honolulu for four people would cost about $1,400. A bus ticket to Salt Lake City, Utah, for the same family would cost $800.

Add to the tab the cost of furnishings, which the city also did not disclose. One SOTA recipient said she received $1,000 for them.

DHS defends the stratospheric costs, saying it actually saves the city on shelter funding — which amounts to about $41,000 annually per family, as compared to the average yearly rent of $17,563 to house families elsewhere.

But critics say the “stop-gap solution” has been fraught with problems, and ultimately has failed to help curb the city’s homelessness.

    Policajci i vatrogasci

    Vozi se grupa policajaca i grupa vatrogasaca u autobusu na sprat. Vatrogasci su u donjem dijelu autobusa a policajci u gornjem. Pritom, vatrogasci se vesele, pjevaju, a policajci svi uplašeni, preblijedjeli, drže se jedan za drugoga.

    Popne se gore jedan vatrogasac i pita ih:
