The Excluded Workers Fund is a one-time payment for low-income New Yorkers who lost income during the COVID-19 pandemic and who are not eligible for Unemployment Insurance due to immigration status or other factors. Eligible applicants can receive either $3,200 or $15,600 (minus taxes) if approved. The application form does not include questions about citizenship or immigration status.
The LaGuardia Rising Committee is collaborating up with Catholic Migration Services to provide information sessions to LaGuardia students about the Excluded Workers Fund at 3:00pm-4:00pm on Thursday, September 23, 2021. RSVP is required at https://bit.ly/LAGCCInformationSessionsEWF.
