(This Policy Directive Obsoletes PB #14-52-ELI, PB #03-146-EMP, and PB #02-156-EMP)
Effective January 2016 and continuing through December 2016, all ABAWDs who reside in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island have been granted waivers of the ABAWD time limits. In Manhattan, ABAWDs who reside on or above the north side of West 110th Street or on or above the north side of East 96th Street have also been granted waivers of the ABAWD time limits for all of 2016. The only ABAWDs in New York City who have not been granted a waiver of the ABAWD time limits are those who reside on or below the south side of West 110th Street or on or below the south side of East 96th Street in Manhattan. Unless excluded, un-waived ABAWDs are subject to the ABAWD time limits if they fail to meet the ABAWD work requirements.
