Advocates are calling for a change in the application process for aid provided to workers who were not included in the federal stimulus payments.
The fund is called the Excluded Workers Fund and worth $2.1 billion dollars.
The fund aided workers like undocumented immigrants that were not included in federal aid approved by Congress.
One of Governor Kathy Hochul’s focuses was the fund and making it accessible to workers.
The coalition, Fund Excluded Workers, planned to meet in front of Hochul’s Manhattan office and focus on how people that qualify can apply for aid.
