The NYC Kids RISE Save for College Program provides families, schools, and communities with a way to work together to save for their children’s futures. It’s a scholarship and savings program designed to make college and career training more accessible and achievable for all NYC public school students.
Opening a NYC Schools Account is the first step towards becoming more involved in your student's education. Receive updates via text messages or email about school closures, emergencies, and upcoming events. Link your students and start monitoring things like grades, test scores, attendance.

Important Information on SNAP Benefits, Unemployment and Health Benefits
If parents are undocumented but their children are U.S. Citizens, they can apply for Cash Assistance and SNAP benefits in their name.
They will consider the income of the parents and because they are unemployed, it will show that the children are also affected financially.
