Take Advantage of Excluded Workers Fund
New York’s Excluded Workers Fund, which is intended to provide much-needed relief to workers cut off from government unemployment benefits and stimulus checks during the pandemic, is now accepting applications.
Any workers who were not eligible for enhanced COVID-19 pandemic unemployment benefits, can apply. The funds do not need to be paid back, and this relief is available regardless of immigration status. Please visit https://dol.ny.gov/EWF for more information and to apply.
I thank New York State’s leaders for their efforts to maximize the scope of our COVID-19 relief initiatives. During the weeks ahead, I look forward to sharing information about the Excluded Workers Fund during community events and with our local faith and civic leaders to ensure that economic relief reaches the maximum number of Nassau residents possible.
