Project FAIR/Public Benefits Project

Project FAIR provides access to information for pro se public benefits recipients about their legal rights in the New York State administrative “fair hearing” process. It also dispenses information about community services and acts as a resource for organizations working with low-income and homeless individuals and families. Pro bono lawyers have the opportunity to engage in advocacy work in conjunction with this unique initiative that reaches individuals facing loss of subsistence economic support and who are not otherwise able to access legal services.
