Benefits Screening/Enrollment

NMIC’s benefits screening and enrollment team is able to screen community members for eligibility for over 40 benefits and assist with their applications for each benefit from initial application submission through follow-up advocacy to ensure benefits are received in the correct amount. Our benefits screening/enrollment programs include:

  • General Benefits: General screening and access to cash assistance, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE), Disability Rent Increase Exemption (DRIE), and others.
  • Health Insurance Marketplace Navigators: Certified Navigators for the New York State of Health health plan marketplace assist community members to identify and apply for the right insurance coverage for themselves while maximizing any subsidies available to assist with insurance costs.
