Don't Miss Your $500
When $1,200 in pandemic relief was distributed in the spring of 2020, it was highly likely that people on benefits did not get their additional $500 per dependent.

One Community rallied an array of allies – the New York City Housing Authority was an aggressive partner – to flood the four public housing developments in Fort Greene with information about how to apply before the September 30, 2020 deadline. The Food Bank of New York City mobilized its tax filing support team to work off season, helping with the filings.
