The Hardship Committee considers applications submitted by Wednesday of each week. Checks will be available the following week on Thursday.
Hardship funds are issued as loans. Loans provided from the Hardship Fund are interest-free. Depending on the level of the hardship fund after the strike, loans may be forgiven. If loan forgiveness is not possible, repayment will begin three months after the end of the strike at an installment amount worked out between the Hardship Committee and the borrower. For your convenience, each installment may be automatically deducted from individual paychecks.
All applications are redacted by the committee so that decisions are made by people who do not know whose applications they are reviewing.
