Have you been ordered to pay child support by Family Court? Unable to pay because you’re unemployed or have a job that doesn’t pay enough? The Human Resource Administration’s (HRA) Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) Employment Opportunity Program (EOP) wants to help. You may qualify for a program to help you find a job through an HRA Back to Work program, to gain employment in various industries, such as auto repair, retail, security and real estate.

These services are FREE and you can call any program no matter which borough you live in. To access these services, contact the program directly and ask if you qualify for the Employment Opportunity Program through the OCSE.
