Hundreds of Sandy victims will need to find a new place to stay after a program keeping them in hotels comes to a close next week.
As a result, many of them may soon be in the shelter system.
A judge has lifted an injunction that has been keeping the program going since May.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency will stop reimbursing the city on Monday, but city officials say they have paid for rooms through Friday.
Roughly 300 people still rely on the program.
If they are unable to stay in hotels on their own, they will be given access to the shelter system.
The city has spent more than $70 million on the program.
City officials say they will do all they can to work with those who need help, but they stress that the program was never intended to be a permanent solution and they cannot continue without federal funding.
