The Emergency Cash Assistance Program (ECAP)

We can help with your urgent and unmet needs by providing immediate $500 grants to help pay your bills.

 

The Emergency Cash Assistance Program (ECAP) is here to help New York City households that have lost jobs as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

 

Applicants need to show proof of unemployment, but in the absence of that proof, they can provide a personal attestation documented in writing regarding their employer and/or the name of the person for whom they worked.

 

Qualifying individuals include:
  • Restaurant workers, hospitality workers, and domestic workers, among others, who have been severely impacted by this crisis;
  • Individuals who do not qualify for unemployment insurance, the new federal stimulus grants or other government benefits (mainly undocumented people);
  • Unemployed workers whose main source of income depended on a cash economy (tips, babysitting, etc).
