NYC Benefits Screening API

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.
