Our Mission

The Human Resources Administration is dedicated to fighting poverty and income inequality with essential programs that help families and individuals with economic and social service needs.

HRA provides New Yorkers with a variety of critical services to make ends meet, including, but not limited to, food and cash assistance, emergency rental assistance, services for individuals with disabilities or those living HIV/AIDS, and emergency shelter for survivors of domestic violence. 

New Yorkers in need can apply for and recertify their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits online and determine if you are eligible for Cash Assistance and other services offered by HRA via the online ACCESS HRA platform.
