Cash Assistance 6-Month Mailer
If you receive a Cash Assistance "Mail-In Recertification /Eligibility Questionnaire" (commonly known as the 6-month mailer), you must submit your signed and completed form by the due date on your notice or your case will close.
You can submit a completed and signed form by taking pictures of all pages and uploading them using the ACCESS HRA Mobile App. If you prefer to mail it back, you can send it back to HRA using the postage-paid envelope that was sent with the form.
If you no longer have that envelope, you can mail the completed form to:
Family Independence Administration
P.O. Box 637
Canal Street Station
New York, NY 10213-0195
If you are not using the envelope sent with the form, you will have to pay for your own postage.
Keep Your HRA Appointments
You should keep your HRA appointments. Your Cash Assistance case will stay open even if you:
- Missed an HRA appointment, including HRA child support appointments. If you miss a child support appointment, you will get a lower benefit amount but your case will stay open.
- Missed an HRA appointment for child care services
- Missed an HRA work or training assignment
All scheduled in-person appointments have been cancelled until further notice. HRA will notify you by text, email and/or postal mail for any steps you must take in the future.
