However, the FEW Coalition and members of Make the Road New York have voiced their concerns over the regulations to determine relief eligibility set in place by the Department of Labor according to this The Indypendent article covering a July 12 rally at the department’s office on Varick Street in Manhattan.

The Excluded Workers Fund application, which will be distributed on a “first come, first served basis,” requires proof of identity, but the FEW Coalition says that the “DMV, IDNYC, the IRS and foreign consulates — offices that excluded workers will need to visit in order to obtain proof of identity — have low appointment availability and are experiencing backlogs.”
