ACCESS NYC, a web-based application on NYC.gov, promotes self-sufficiency among New York City’s residents by providing a single point of entry to City, State, and Federal human service benefit programs.
It allows residents to pre-screen, anonymously, for 35 programs in seven different languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Haitian-Creole, and English. By entering household information, residents can receive a list of the programs for which they are potentially eligible, print partially-complete application forms, search for office locations, and create an account to access their information at a time most convenient to them.
