How We helped over 500 New Yorkers get $15,000 each from the Excluded Workers Fund Program

The Background

On March 27, 2021, the United States’s Federal Government rolled out a relief payment program to assist and relieve the citizens, due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. The people with difficulties in getting jobs, or those who lost their jobs or sources of income due to the pandemic.

However, some people are not able to access these funds for different reasons ranging from unavailability of required documents to present themselves eligible for the Federal Government relief funds. Some were immigrants, whose jobs have been lost due to the lockdown and could hardly make ends mean.

The majority of the people led a peaceful protest to express themselves and their grievances as to why they have been excluded from the scheme. The cities and states in the United States of America got flooded with thousands of citizens trying to voice their discontents on the unpaid relief funds.

The State Government of New York, through the Department of Labor, however, organized an Excluded Workers Funds (EWF) Scheme, to serve as payment for workers with low income, who are excluded from other benefits, most importantly those who lost income due to Covid and are not eligible for Unemployment Insurance (UI), due to their immigration status or other pressing factors.

This gesture from the New York government gave New Yorkers who have been excluded from the initial Federal Government Scheme a bit of hope of getting some relief funds from the government to cater for the household needs.

But to be eligible for the funds, they needed to meet up with some criteria, before being considered.

And this is where Melissa & Co Business Consulting comes in…
