If you previously signed up for snow shoveling removal via Council Member Holden’s office, Wildcat will remove the snow from your sidewalk. If you signed up via Assembly Member Barnwell’s office, Maspeth High School students will clear your snow. These programs are not accepting new signups at this time. However, elderly and disabled homeowners may request snow removal from the City of New York via 311:

“In the event of a snowstorm of 6 inches or more, eligible New Yorkers within designated areas across the City may receive assistance to remove snow from the sidewalk outside of a homeowner’s residence. 

To be eligible, you must own a home within select areas and fall under one of these two categories:

  • A homeowner who is 60 years of age and older
  • A homeowner who has a disability

Snow shoveling assistance is limited only to the sidewalk outside of the residence. Shoveling assistance does not include clearing access to automobiles and driveways. 

Please note, this service is based on availability of staff and volunteers and does not guarantee snow shoveling assistance. If determined eligible, you will be notified directly by a contractor ahead of the snow shoveling service. 

Call 311 for assistance by phone.”
