The Golden Rules to Access Education and Training



April 20th, 2016

Hunter East, Rm 1042

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

If you are worried about dropping out of school because of public assistance requirements, we can help!

College matters more than ever before for both professional development and personal growth.  In fact, nearly 90% of CUNY students receiving welfare secure living wage jobs and move permanently out of poverty after earning their degrees.

Each year, we assist hundreds of low-income, undergraduate students who are working toward a better future.

Come to our FREE workshop and learn how students on public assistance can stay in school without jeopardizing their families’ essential benefits.
This 90-minute session covers topics such as:

  • Provisions on the 4 Year College Rule
  • Provisions of the NYS
    Work Study/Internship Law, and HRA Work Study
  • TAG Program/CUNY First Documents
  • Update on WEP (Workfare)/SNAP Benefits
  • Fair Hearing Process

Welfare Rights Initiative is dedicated to making education a stepping-stone to life-changing opportunity. For more information, please visit
