Welfare & Public Assistance:
The City of Clifton has contracted with the Passaic County Board of Social Services to provide the mandated Local Public Assistance program to adults in need. The City maintained it's own Welfare program under the auspices of the Local Public Assistance Board which was appointed by the Mayor and Council prior to contracting with the County. The program is offered at 114 Prospect St, Passaic, NJ. This transition has allowed the program to expand it's level of services for Clifton residents to include Food Stamps, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, and Medicaid Certification. Information and referral are available about other social service organizations. Those social services needs not provided by the Welfare Division are handled through the Health and Senior Citizen Divisions. The Welfare Division can be reached by calling (973)881-0100.
