Project Reconnect Homeless Assistance

Project Reconnect is for homeless people who are in a shelter or applying for shelter in New York City. If you have a place where you can live outside of the City and you qualify, the Department of Homeless Services (DHS) may be able to help you get one-way transportation by train, bus, or plane.

To qualify for one-way transportation, you must have:

  • A strong connection to a location outside of New York City
  • Already identified an apartment or house where you can live
  • A way to support yourself, either through a job or through a family member or other person

For more information, you should speak to your case worker at your shelter or ask the DHS staff when applying for shelter at a homeless intake location.
