Thank you for signing up to learn more about the Excluded Worker Fund and the COVID rent relief program that immigrant, Black, and brown New Yorkers won in the New York State budget.
These new programs are the result of incredible organizing by our communities, who marched, rallied, and contacted our elected officials to demand a true recovery for all. These programs passed in the state’s budget but the applications are not yet open.
Here is everything we know about the Excluded Worker Fund so far, including who is eligible and what documents you will need to prepare in order to apply.
Here is everything we know about the COVID rent relief program so far, including who is eligible and how the funds will be distributed.
Once the applications do open, you will NOT need an attorney or paid help to apply for these relief programs. Anyone who claims that you can already receive these benefits, or that you must pay them to apply, is not a trusted source of support.
We will be in touch as soon as we know more! In the coming weeks, our team will be offering training with more details on the program and how to apply. When the program launches we will provide further support for those that need assistance with the application. We can’t wait to help eligible New Yorkers receive this relief as soon as possible!
We look forward to sharing more soon!
