The NYC Benefits Screening Application Programming Interface (API) supports the development of new and existing public benefits-related web applications as well as enabling public benefits screening to happen against existing datasets of benefits seekers.
Through this API, household data (i.e. information about a household’s income, expenses, housing situation, etc.) can be compared against screening criteria for 30+ Federal, State, and Municipal benefits and programs and a screening result will be produced, containing the potentially eligible benefit and program names and codes.

Rat Information Portal Data Release Notes April 20, 2015
The Rat Information Portal (RIP) is a web-based mapping application where users can view rat inspection data.
Data sources: NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), Division of Environmental Health Pest Control Database
Notes on data limitations: Please note that if a property/taxlot does not appear in the file, that does not indicate an absence of rats - rather just that it has not been inspected. Similarly, neighborhoods with higher rates of active rat signs may not actually have higher rat populations but simply have more inspections.
