Mayor's Preliminary FY 2007 Management Report Released
Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg released his Preliminary Management Report for the Fiscal Year 2007. The report places the "updated goal" for food stamp participation in fiscal year 2007 at 1, 171,100 - the same number predicted for fiscal year 2006 and also for the future fiscal year, 2008. The report did state that the Human Resources Administration "is experimenting with community partners to complete and submit Food Stamp applications electronically. HRA will expand the hours of operation at certain offices to evaluate the demand for additional evening hours, and has developed a new brochure on food stamps. HRA is also taking steps to simplify the recertification process and increase the use of automation for processing applications."
