1. How it Works
REES helps NYCHA residents improve their financial futures through hiring events, job training, financial literacy education, and programs on starting a business.
- REES partners can help in many ways. Program areas are:
- Adult education and training – adult basic education (ABE) classes, pre-High School Equivalency (Pre-HSE) programs, and English language learning programs.
- Financial empowerment – services to help you reach financial stability.
- Employment and career advancement – support to help you find a job.
- resident business development – support to help you start a business.
- REES can also help qualified residents access Earned Income Disallowance (EID), which can delay rent increases if your income goes up.
