Financial Empowerment

Access to safe, affordable financial products and services can help immigrants move forward financially.

New York City's Financial Empowerment Centers offer free, one-on-one financial counseling in multiple languages to help New Yorkers tackle debt, save for the future, open a bank account, improve credit, and more.

New Yorkers can get help preparing and filing taxes through different sites located around the City or online. Trained staff members can also help determine eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit or the New York City Child Care Tax Credit.

For more information about financial empowerment services, visit the New York City Office of Financial Empowerment website or call 311.
