Local 1000 Emergency Relief Fund – Covid 19

(Updated 3/20/2020)

Local 1000 is committed to helping any member who finds themselves in financial crisis due to the current Covid-19 situation. Our Emergency Relief Fund (ERF) can supply a no-interest loan of up to $500 for members who need assistance to cover immediate needs such as rent or food costs. If you have savings to get you by for the next 1-2 months, please hold off on your request so we can help those in the most need first.  You must be a member in good standing and demonstrate financial need.


Please contact Local 1000 via email,, for an application form. You will be asked for some basic information about lost income and your immediate need.


The Executive Board will assess requests as quickly as we can — please be patient as we set up our processes and systems.


If you have questions regarding the ERF please email

Note: Note: ERF loans are no-interest loans that we expect you will re-pay over the next five years. This allows the same ERF money to be used to assist members over and over again and it’s an important way we can support each other.
