Basic Guidelines for Getting Services

Whether you're trying to work with a city system or private service provider, following certain steps and procedures will help you to be more successful in getting the best service you are entitled to.

You and your family have the right to use these services (make sure you qualify):

  • Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)
  • Medicaid
  • Food Stamps
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Earned Income Tax Credit
  • Public school education for Your Grandchild
  • Access to the Legal System

If you know what you need, say so! If you're not sure, find out and then say so!
