WHAT IS THE EXCLUDED NEW JERSEYANS FUND (ENJF)?
The ENJF provides a one-time, direct cash benefit to eligible households who have suffered hardship due to COVID-19 and were excluded from both the federal stimulus checks and COVID related unemployment assistance -- including undocumented individuals, residents re-entering from the justice system, and any other individuals otherwise excluded.
Eligible households will receive a benefit of up to $2,000 per eligible individuals and a max of $4,000 per household. Households with incomes up to $55,000 a year with documented hardship or lost income due to COVID-19 can apply for assistance.
Applications for this program will be accepted through January 31, 2022. They will be processed in the order they are received and until funds are exhausted. Applying for the program does not guarantee assistance.
