NYC Human Resources Administration - Cash Assistance - Eligible families may receive up to 60 months of federally funded cash assistance under the Temporary Aid to Needy Families Program (TANF). Single individuals without children may receive benefits under the New York State Safety Net Program. Also, families who have received cash assistance for 60 months may continue to receive benefits under the New York State Safety Net Program.
The Bridge Fund of New York City serves all 5 boroughs. In 2013, the Bridge Fund stabilized over 1,000 families and individuals in imminent danger of losing their housing. The critical, largely private financial assistance we provide to clients is possible due to the generosity of our wonderful contributors. We especially wish to thank The New York Community Trust that has granted substantial funding for the New York City program since 2009.
