It’s that time of the year again!  Henry Street Settlement is gearing up for another cycle of SYEP.

The SYEP 2013 Application will be available online beginning on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 9am at www.nyc.gov/dycd

The deadline to submit the SYEP application is May 10, 2013

There will be applications available in the Brooklyn office located at 1958 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY 11233 and in the Queens office located at the Jamaica YMCA 89-25 Parsons Blvd, Jamaica, NY 11432.  Please remember that applications will not be available until the 1st week of April.

Unfortunately, Henry Street no longer has a contract of SYEP in the Manhattan office.  If you live in Manhattan, you will not be able to apply to Henry Street as you did in the past but instead you will have to visit the other providers in Manhattan which include:
