A Note about the NDWA Coronavirus Care Fund

The Coronavirus Care Fund was established by the National Domestic Workers Alliance to provide emergency assistance for home care workers, nannies and house cleaners to support them in staying safe and staying home to slow the spread of the Coronavirus, and to care for themselves and their families. Qualifying applicants who are experiencing financial hardship due to the Coronavirus pandemic can receive $400 in emergency assistance from the Fund.

At this time, the Coronavirus Care Fund application is only open to domestic workers who are participants in activities of the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA), NDWA chapters, affiliate organizations, and circles or who were NDWA dues-paying members or Alia users prior to March 16, 2020. The NDWA will open the Fund for applications from other domestic workers as soon as funding allows.

You can find more information at the Coronavirus Care Fund here.
