The Community Action Center is the constituent service arm of the Comptroller's office. It is the main point of contact for the office and the principal liaison to the public, mayoral agencies, federal, state, and local authorities.
Since its inception in 1990, the Community action Center provides information and advocacy to New Yorkers that facilitated resolutions to complaints about inadequate or lack of municipal service - from potholes to sanitation pick-ups, water and sewer charges disputes, pension payments, parking tickets and more.
The Community Action Center helps to increase responsiveness and resolve problems that impact the quality of life individuals, families and neighborhoods in the City. New Yorkers seeking assistance navigating City government can tap the resources of the Community Action Center team, who know how to maneuver through bureaucracy quickly and effectively.
CPSBPD provides on-site training and on-campus training to businesses and corporations on a contractual basis. Rates are less expensive than commercial firms.
Lower Manhattan Business Outreach Center provides Business counseling, technical assistance, and microfinancing. We also provide business training and workshops in English and Chinese.
New Yorkers turn to FIT for practical know-how and support to build successful businesses and to upgrade the technical skills indispensable in today's business and design environments. For over two decades the Enterprise Center has served those at the intersection of art and commerce with credit and non-credit classes, certificate programs and special events.
