NEW YORK (WKBW) — In a move to support‍ families facing increased financial hardships, New ‌York Governor Kathy ​Hochul has⁤ announced a one-time payment of $100 to households enrolled in public assistance with children 17 or younger.

Thanks to $12 million in⁣ federal‌ funding, these Family Economic Support ‍payments ⁢are being ⁣provided to help cover the⁢ expenses of households that have been hit hard by the pandemic.

“Our ​state has been successful in providing ​federal assistance to some of our most vulnerable residents, and as a ‍result, we have ‌qualified for additional funding that has gone unused by other states. This critical support will​ give families quick access to much-needed financial ⁣relief,⁤ which has been long overdue.”

– Gov. ⁣Kathy Hochul

The governor’s office reports‍ that ‍approximately 120,000 families with children ⁣are qualified for ‌this assistance. Eligible households will begin receiving payments on Tuesday, and⁣ they will be notified by mail.

“These one-time payments, ​although modest, will⁣ make ‍a significant difference for ​families on ⁢Public Assistance, especially⁤ during these difficult times⁢ when⁤ all households are facing increased costs for basic needs. We are grateful ⁣to Governor ‌Hochul for her efforts to⁣ help ⁢support and provide for families across the state.”

– Barbara C.⁣ Guinn, Acting Commissioner of the New York State Office of Temporary ‌and Disability Assistance
