New York State Announces $26.6 Million for Grants to Support Essential Workers

We wanted to let PEF members know that New York State recently made available $26.6 million funded through private donations for ​the Empire Pandemic Grant Program. The money is intended for essential workers and first responders for “unreimbursed expenses they incurred while responding to the coronavirus pandemic between March 1 and July 31, 2020.” More information can be found here: https://ocfs.ny.gov/main/contracts/funding/

Please note that THIS IS NOT A PEF PROGRAM and it is subject to eligibility restrictions and documentation requirements. Therefore, members should exercise due diligence and thoroughly review the application criteria before applying.
