AVAILABLE AID CATEGORIES
There are two available options: PARTIAL-WAGE LOSS ($400 stipend) or TOTAL-WAGE LOSS ($800 stipend). Aid will be distributed once to single applicants, according to the order received and urgency. If we surpass our campaign goal -- and every qualified applicant has received support -- the remaining funds will be re-distributed evenly among approved applicants.

- PARTIAL WAGE LOSS: A one-time amount of $400 for applicants reporting partial-wage loss and facing financial hardship due to COVID-19 (ex: applicant has lost some recent work, but qualifies for some unemployment benefit; has a backup or accessory income source). 

- TOTAL WAGE LOSS: A one-time amount of $800 for applicants reporting total-wage loss and facing financial hardship due to COVID-19 (ex. 1099 employees who lost substantial work and do not qualify for unemployment; employees who were fired or had their start dates cancelled or delayed)
