TROY WALLACE, Plaintiff,

SANDRA J. FEUERSTEIN, District Judge.
On April 10, 2014, pro se plaintiff Troy Wallace ("plaintiff") filed a civil rights complaint in this Court pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 ("Section 1983") against John O'Neill, Commissioner of Suffolk County Department of Social Services; Mary Ann Sexton, Central Housing Coordinator; and "Mrs. Allen (Jane Doe), " Central Housing Co-Coordinator (collectively, "defendants"), accompanied by an application to proceed in forma pauperis.
Since plaintiff's financial status, as set forth in his declaration in support of his application to proceed in forma pauperis, qualifies him to commence this action without prepayment of the filing fees, see 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1), the application to proceed in forma pauperis is granted.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to: (1) issue summonses as to each defendant; (2) forward copies of the summonses, the complaint, the Notice of Hearing dated April 23, 2014 and this Order to the United States Marshal for the Eastern District of New York for service upon defendants without prepayment of fees; and (3) serve notice of entry of this Order upon plaintiff in accordance with Rule 77(d)(1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
