How do I apply for Temporary Assistance?
If you live outside of New York City, call or visit your local department of social services in the county where you live and ask for an application package. If you live in New York City, call or visit your local Job Center. You must fill out the application form and turn it in. You may turn in the application the same day you get it. You should also identify any emergency needs you may have at this time.
