[post_content] => New York City residents may apply for a one-time emergency grant, also called a "One Shot,” when an unforeseen circumstance prevents the applicant from meeting an expense. An applicant must meet eligibility guidelines and is subject to investigative review of the application. Emergency grant applicants may obtain rental assistance in cases of impending evictions, assistance with home energy and utility bills, disaster assistance including moving expenses, and the purchase of personal items for health and safety.
The most common One Shots are for rent, utilities and moving/furniture. FIA/TANF and ODVEIS emergency programs (HEAP, UAP and Heatline) provide "One Shots" when needed. The services are related, but organizationally FIA/TANF and ODEVIS are separate entities who may refer people to each other if another program meets the person's needs better.
The best way to figure out if someone qualifies for a One Shot or has an ongoing need that may be better addressed through another benefit program is to refer the client to the job center or program area. The staff in each of the designated programs is able to evaluate the client's situation and determine the benefit. Since "One Shots" are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, this information is not advertised. However, many social services agencies are aware of the benefit and process and are able to direct clients to the job center or appropriate program area.
