Project FAIR is a collaborative, New York City-based project working towards greater economic justice for low-income and homeless New Yorkers.
Specifically, Project FAIR recruits, trains, and supervises advocates to staff a table on-site at the central fair hearing site to provide information and referrals to unrepresented benefits applicants and recipients.
Our work grows more important each day. Over 2.5 million New York City residents receive public assistance, food stamps, or Medicaid. In the hundreds of fair hearings held each day to resolve problems with these benefits, almost 95% of individuals appear without representation or assistance. As the only agency located on-site at the main fair hearing site and the only agency specializing in fair hearings, Project FAIR brings access to information and assistance to people when and where they need it the most. Project FAIR is a 501(c)(3) organization.
