As of March 22, 2020, New York State has been on PAUSE. This means that all non-essential businesses have been directed to suspend activities, and New Yorkers refrain from leaving their homes except for essential trips, such as for food and medical visits. As a result of the PAUSE act, Grand Street Guild understands that many residents have been affected by the closure of their businesses or have had their hours severely reduced. This page is a guide for residents to access the benefits and services that are available for all New Yorkers. If you have any questions you can contact Grand Street Guild Community & Social Services at 646-856-6385 (En/Esp) or 646-984-0167(En/Cn).
The IRS has recently launched their online portal for non-filers to provide the necessary information to receive an economic impact check (Coronavirus Relief Check) even if you have not filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019. If you need assistance navigating the portal please contact Henry Orbe at NYLAG. (347-286-1631)
