Family Rewards Program

1- Primary Navigation

BronxWorks is a participating agency in Family Rewards, the city’s Conditional Cash Transfer program designed to reduce poverty.  Qualifying families earn cash incentives for successfully accomplishing activities in these areas:


  • Children’s education (with incentives tied to consistent attendance, good grades, and achievement on standardized tests)
  • Family preventive health care (with incentives for regular medical and dental visits for each family member)
  • Parental employment and education (with incentives for parents who maintain full-time employment and earn a GED)


The Family Rewards program is supported by the NYC Center for Economic Opportunity (CEO), Children's Aid Society, and MDRC.  To be eligible for the program, a family must be recruited and preselected by Children's Aid Society.

The participating families are TANF or food stamp recipients.  The cash incentive payments supplement but do not replace or affect TANF, food stamps, other benefit payments, or the Earned Income Tax Credit.  The incentive payments will continue for three years, even if the parent has left public assistance during that time (unless they move out of the city).

Enrollment into the Family Rewards Program is closed.
