With the NYC ACCESS HRA mobile app, you can check your:

  • Recent and upcoming payments
  • Upcoming appointments
  • Documents HRA has received

Using the mobile app you can also:

  • Set alerts when recertification is due

The ACCESS HRA website includes all of the case management tools of the mobile app, PLUS you can:

  • Submit your SNAP application online
  • Recertify your SNAP or Cash Assistance online

If you already have an ACCESS HRA or ACCESS NYC profile, you can use both on the site and the mobile app by logging in with your username and password.
