The NYC Benefits Screening API allows users to access New York City's Eligibility Screener for health and human services. The API enables developers to create web applications that evaluate household data against eligibility rules for different city, state, and federal benefits programs. Household information is sent to the Benefits Screening REST API and program names and codes are returned in JSON format. The API provides results from a dataset catalog that provides benefit, program, and resource information for over 40 health and human services available to NYC residents.
Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Transportation, Open Data, and Music. Highlights include an API for fleet GPS services and an API for querying data about requests to The Freedom Of Information Act. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
