The instructions in this policy bulletin are to inform staff at the Special Project Job Center (Center 80) of a centralized processing unit that will process Cash Assistance (CA) applications submitted by Adult Protective Services (APS). They are informational for all other staff.
Previously, the applications of individuals and families interviewed and serviced by APS were handled by hub sites in each of the five boroughs. APS borough liaisons would submit the application to the respective Job Center. Now, the centralized unit at Center 80 will process CA applications submitted by APS. APS borough liaisons will no longer be required to submit CA applications in person to a Job Center.
