Event Series Event Series: Ending the Benefits Cliff Symposium

Ending the Benefits Cliff Symposium

August 18, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register Now!

FPWA invites you to attend its Ending the Benefits Cliff Symposium: a virtual convening to address the benefits cliff in New York State and City, which we believe grew following the legislative victory increasing the statewide minimum wage to $15 and will continue to grow as an unprecedented number of people access social safety net benefits due to COVID-19.

Please save these dates: August 18th – 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM and August 19th – 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. We will be sending out more logistical and programmatic details prior to the symposium.

FPWA has recently been receiving claims from members of the public emailing and calling our offices that individuals posing as FPWA agents have contacted them claiming that in order for the recipient to claim grant monies from FPWA they must first send the agent personal information, a cell phone number, gift card codes or money.

FPWA does not use social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), text messages or direct phone contact to solicit, review, or make awards. FPWA staff will not call or message you requesting money in order to be eligible for an award.

Further, FPWA does not make grants directly to individuals. FPWA works with its member agency partners and other reputable community-based organizations to direct support to families and individuals in our community.

If you or someone you know has been contacted by someone posing to be an “FPWA Agent” or staff person requesting money to release a grant, please do the following:
