An Overview of the Impacts of New York’s Excluded Workers Fund
The Excluded Workers Fund was set up in 2021 to provide financial relief to New York State residents who had lost work during the COVID-19 crisis but who had not received unemployment insurance—primarily immigrants who are undocumented—with assistance on par with what other workers received in unemployment benefits for the year. This brief provides findings from a survey of individuals in the population targeted for aid. The survey was conducted to better understand the successes and shortcomings of the program; survey responses were collected from June 21 to July 27, 2022 in Arabic, Bangla, Chinese, English, French, Korean, and Spanish.
