A Year After Ida Floods, New York’s $27M Immigrant Relief Fund Doled Out Less Than $2M

The Ida relief fund for “Excluded New Yorkers” was set up by the city and state for people who suffered damages from the historic flooding but didn’t qualify for aid administered by FEMA because of their immigration status. But a year later, just a fraction of the funding has been used, and only 330 out of 554 have received a cash payout.
