City of New York: COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund

Host Organization: City of New Yorkmdi-circle-small New York, NY, United States mdi-circle-small


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 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

About the Host

The government of New York City is organized under the New York City Charter and provides for a "strong" mayor-council system. The mayor is elected to a four-year term and is responsible for the administration of city government. The New York City Council is a unicameral body consisting of 51 members, each elected from a geographic district, normally for four-year terms. All elected officials—other than those elected before 2010, who are limited to three consecutive terms —are subject to a two consecutive-term limit. The court system consists of two citywide courts and three statewide courts.
