Fund Excluded Workers

The New York Immigration Coalition, in conjunction with the FEW Coalition, won an important victory in 2021 for immigrant New Yorkers devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic and excluded from all federal and state relief. The establishment of the Excluded Workers Fund is the first of its kind—a $2.1 billion statewide fund offering any workers, including undocumented immigrants, who were not eligible for unemployment benefits, an opportunity for recovery.
