Work Supports


Working families in New York State may be eligible for a variety of work supports including federal, state and New York City tax credits, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits and many other supports. See OTDA’s Resources for Working Families page for more information.

A working family that receives a combination of work supports can significantly increase their income. The first two charts below show how some of the available work supports - Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, Earned Income Tax Credit (state and federal), and other child-related state and federal tax credits - can significantly increase the household income of a single working parent with two children. The second chart represents the same family living in, with the additional tax credit they would receive as residents.

With wages alone, this family’s income is below the federal poverty level, but a combination of wages plus work supports raises them well over the federal poverty level.
