Welfare recipients living in the Big Apple will barely have to lift a finger to get food stamps from now on, thanks to a new mobile “app” released by the city’s welfare agency that takes care of filing all the paperwork for them. Known as ACCESS HRA Mobile, the tool reportedly does all the work for people who participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), further perpetuating the stereotype of laziness that already defines the widely abused welfare program.

Introduced back in March, the app has already been used by welfare recipients to upload more than 1 million filing documents, according to The New York Times. The app not only guides users in how to submit complex SNAP paperwork for agency review, but it also allows them to easily check their eligibility status in a pinch, as well as schedule upcoming appointments with the agency to keep the gravy train rolling.

Made possible with a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), ACCESS HRA Mobile functions like a personal assistant for those on welfare who apparently can’t even be bothered with having to exert the energy required to apply for free food and other taxpayer-funded benefits. Many welfare recipients, according to the grant announcement, are failing to submit their paperwork on time, and thus require yet another “nanny” state authority to help them obtain the basics for survival.

The app, says the USDA, is meant to help “improve the ways low-income New Yorkers can interact with HRA and will help to address the persistent challenge of clients missing deadlines to complete the SNAP eligibility process.”
