Cummings continues to provide over 1,000 Holocaust Survivors living in Quebec with homecare and financial assistance through funding from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

Claims Conference announces supplemental Hardship Fund payments

The Claims Conference announced that the most recent negotiations with Germany resulted in two supplemental payments, each of €1,200 (approximately $1,800 CAD), for Jewish Nazi victims eligible for the Hardship fund. Applications for these supplemental payments will be sent in the mail by Claims Conference to all eligible individuals. The payments will be made in each of the next two years and will become effective as of December 1, 2020.
