A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the department of social services to provide semiannual reports to the council regarding referrals to adult protective services

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

                           Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 21 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 21-136 to read as follows:

§ 21-136 Semiannual reports regarding referrals to adult protective services. a. For the purposes of this section "adult protective services" means the New York city department of social services/human resources administration case management program that arranges for services and support for physically and/or mentally impaired adults who are at risk of harm.

b. The commissioner shall prepare semiannual reports regarding referrals to adult protective services. Each such report shall include, but not be limited to, the total number of referrals received by adult protective services during each six month period and the number of referred individuals who were determined ineligible during such six month period, disaggregated by the reasons individuals were determined ineligible, a general description of the source of the referrals, and the council district, community board, and zip code of the referred individuals. For purposes of this subdivision, the first such report shall cover the period from July 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015, and each six month period shall be deemed to end on June 30 and December 31, respectively, of each calendar year. Each report shall be submitted to the speaker and posted on the department's website within 60 days of the end of such period. Nothing herein shall require the department to share information that identifies the subject of, or the individuals who made, such referrals.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately and expires and is deemed repealed on January 1, 2023.
