ZwillGen Launches $100,000 Relief Initiative to Support Furloughed Federal Employees
WASHINGTON, D.C., January 22, 2019 – ZwillGen PLLC launched an initiative today to provide up to $100,000 in relief to federal workers who are affected by the government shutdown. Furloughed federal workers in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area can receive no-interest, no-fee loans for up to $500 without a credit check and with generous repayment terms.
To avoid any conflicts of interest, eligible federal workers must work for agencies where ZwillGen does not have any pending business and where the firm is unlikely to have any in the near future. These include agencies such as the EPA, National Park Service, and the TSA, and others to be determined on a case-by-case basis. Federal employees must also make less than $65,000 annually and work in the D.C. area to be eligible.

“We hope the President stops holding federal workers hostage as soon as possible, but in the meantime, we cannot ignore the needs of those in our community who are most affected,” said Marc Zwillinger, ZwillGen’s Founder and Managing Member. “We will do our part to help for as long as the shutdown is in effect.”
ZwillGen estimates that the initiative can help at least 200 people in the D.C. area. The firm invites its clients and other law firms to join this effort by providing additional funding. With more funds the program can support more furloughed workers.
“Our clients also care for those in need,” said Zwillinger. “We invite others who want to help to follow our lead. The opportunity here is simple: with more funds we all can help reduce the impact of this shutdown for more people.”
