New York City Mayor Eric Adams has launched a new digital initiative intended to help improve communication between his administration and residents.

Residents who sign up for the new initiative will receive digital communications directly from Mayor Adams with information about new initiatives and policies, local events, and more.

“If we’re launching a new program that New Yorkers care about, that can put money in pockets or improve quality of life, I’m going to make sure New Yorkers hear about it directly,” said Mayor Adams. “We’ve accomplished so much in our first year – from expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit to making quality childcare affordable for all New Yorkers and more. But none of those accomplishments mean anything if New Yorkers don’t know about them and aren’t using them. That changes now.”

Mayor Adams’ office noted in a press release that one of the administration’s key priorities for 2023 is ensuring that New Yorkers can access city services. His office also noted that “a select list of some of the administration’s 2022 wins for New Yorkers is available online.” The new digital communication program will send information about those initiatives, and more, directly in New Yorkers’ inboxes.

“The Office of Technology and Innovation is proud to support this new channel for Mayor Adams to share critical information, and to continue advancing better ways for New Yorkers to connect with government services and each other,” said Chief Technology Officer Matthew Fraser.
