Resources for Immigrant Students at CUNY: Campus food pantries, Single Stop programs, and emergency loans

CUNY Food Pantries

City-Wide Food Pantries

CUNY Single Stop Programs

CUNY has partnered with the nonprofit organization Single Stop which offers referrals to a variety of social services including legal, child care, health insurance, financial counseling, public benefits, and tax preparation. There is a screening process. Some campuses request that you do the screening process online, while others have an office where you can meet with someone.

Emergency Loans and Grants Programs

Several CUNY schools provide a Carroll and Milton Petrie Student Emergency Grant Fund which has been created for the purpose of providing quick response emergency grants to students in good standing with short-term financial emergencies, to enable them to remain in school, rather than being forced to take a leave of absence or drop out.
