    HFLA Offers Relief to Federal Furloughed Workers in Northeast Ohio


    Hebrew Free Loan Association (HFLA), a non-sectarian 115-year-old nonprofit in Northeast Ohio, is offering relief to furloughed federal workers through the HFLA Federal Furloughed Worker Program.  This newly created program expedites the loan application process and provides Interest Free loans.  
     
    Through no fault of their own, many federal government workers find themselves without a paycheck during January 2019.  Unknowing of how long the government shutdown will extend, many will turn to their family, friends and eventually, predatory lending institutions such as payday loans.  
     
    While the government has made suggestions as to how hardworking furloughed workers should contact their creditors, landlords and mortgage companies, HFLA offers immediate relief for qualified applicants, during this stressful time.  
     
    Michal Marcus, Executive Director of HFLA, is available for interviews to inform the public of this service  
     
    For inquiries, please call (216) 378 – 9042 or by email, michal@interestfree.org or download the HFLA Federal Furloughed Workers Fact Sheet.
     
    About HFLA of Northeast Ohio
    HFLA of Northeast Ohio was founded in 1904 with $501 donated by Charles Ettinger, Morris Black, and their friends to help European refugees settle and begin productive lives in this country. They believed – as we do now – that if you give someone a chance to succeed, they will pay it back and we can continue this transformative cycle. The same principle guides the organization today. By providing interest-free loans to individuals, families, and small businesses in the Northeast Ohio area, we are able to help people help themselves. The association has drastically increased its lending capital in the past few years from individual gifts, bequests, endowments, foundation grants, memorials and honorariums and is now operating with a loan fund of over $1 million. HFLA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
