New Recipients Resources:

Holocaust survivors seeking assistance must be referred to The Blue Card by social service agencies or government agencies in the communities where they live. A case manager at the social service agency performs a financial assessment and reviews the applicant’s income and expenses to establish need and, when appropriate, helps the senior access any public entitlements for which the survivor may be eligible.

In order to help as many Holocaust survivors as possible in the US, The Blue Card is an agency of last resort.
To potentially be eligible for Blue Card assistance, a Holocaust survivor must show that they are 200% below the poverty line in income (not including SSI and restitution), they have an urgent financial need for assistance, that there is no other agency (local and government) that can assist, and that they live in The Blue Card’s jurisdiction via Claims Conference’s guidelines.
 
To check if your client lives in The Blue Card’s jurisdiction, please call or email The Blue Card office at 212.239.2251 or info@bluecardfund.org

The Blue Card carefully reviews each application and referral; all information is kept confidential. The review determines the appropriate amount of financial aid for that individual or couple, using federal poverty levels as a guide, with extenuating circumstances taken into consideration.

Social workers, please submit the application forms to refer your client to The Blue Card for financial assistance.
