Access to the Federal Food Stamp Program: An In-Depth Analysis of New York City’s Immigrant Communities, Estimates of Unmet Need and Barriers to Access is a comprehensive analysis of the context of immigrant food stamps access in New York City.  The report includes maps of each of the City’s five boroughs highlighting those zip codes with the greatest concentration of eligible and non-participating immigrants and the results of advocate interviews describing barriers that disproportionately impact immigrant communities.  The final section of the report outlines policymaker and advocate generated recommendations to improve immigrant access.
