Background

The HHS Connect team works within the Mayor's Office of Operations to break information silos through the use of modernized technology and coordinated Agency practices to more efficiently and effectively provide Health and Human Services to New Yorkers. The team operates two key products: ACCESS NYC and Worker Connect.

ACCESS NYC

ACCESS NYC is the City's front door to public benefit programs where residents can find out if they are potentially eligible and apply online for key programs. The team works to improve outcomes for New Yorkers through increasing information and access to public benefit programs and services. Learn more.

Worker Connect

Worker Connect helps to increase the efficiency of Health and Human Service (HHS) workers by providing them with an integrated view of information across HHS programs and a central point to access data from relevant HHS systems. Learn more.
