With the outbreak and spread of COVID-19, New York City has undergone a seismic shift in daily life. New Yorkers are resilient, but many across the five boroughs and from all walks of life are feeling the impacts of the novel coronavirus physically, emotionally, financially, and otherwise.   

In the midst of difficult and uncertain times New Yorkers are stepping up. Many are seeking to connect and lend support to their neighbors by asking, “How can I help?”    

In response, Mayor de Blasio has charged the Mayor’s Fund with activating the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to provide resources and support to:

  • Health care workers and essential staff
  • Local small businesses
  • Displaced hourly workers, including immigrant workers
  • Families, youth, and vulnerable New Yorkers
