  1. REG. # APP 009283 APPLIED ALMOST EIGHT WEEKS AGO AT THE FT.TILDEN LOCATION..SO FAR NO CONTACT OF ANY KIND. WAS TOLD THAT SOMEONE WOULD call me within two weeks (of that time). .Need a reply PLEASE

  2. I was just told by someone at the BIB center on Hylan Blvd Staten Island that they are not helping renters?? So why did someone call me last month to ask my families year to date income??

    • Dear Nancy, the registration expired on 10/31 of this year. Where is your home? I can see what other programs may be available. Information about this program has been made available by many groups since last year.
