The New York Post reports:

The city program will offer asylum seekers at the Roosevelt Hotel with hard cash, intended to help them pay for food, according to city records.

The program will begin with 500 migrant families in short-term hotel stays.

A family of four could receive nearly $1,000 a month.

50 Cent, also known as Curtis James Jackson III, was once one of the biggest rappers of the 2000s.

He later diversified into music production, his own clothing line, and a partnership with Vitamin Water.

Reps for City Hall did not immediately respond to request for comment from The Post.

50 Cent, like many rappers, has long nursed an affinity for Trump — and endorsed him in the 2020 presidential election — citing a fear of tax increases.

Fox News provided more details about the program:

The pre-paid cards may only be used at bodegas, grocery stores, supermarkets and convenience stores. Migrants eligible for the program must sign an affidavit stating they will only spend the funds on food and baby supplies, or else they would lose access to the funds, the report said.

The amount available to each migrant family depends on their size and how much income they are receiving, according to the contract reviewed by the Post. A family of four might be provided nearly $1,000 each month, or $35 per day for food, the Post reported. The cards are replenished every 28 days.

New Jersey company Mobility Capital Finance has partnered with the city to run the program.

“MoCaFi looks forward to partnering with New York City to disburse funds for asylum seekers to purchase fresh, hot food,” MoCaFi CEO and founder Wole Coaxum told the Post. “MoCaFi’s goal is to expand access to financial resources for individuals excluded from banking, such as asylum seekers, while helping the local economy.”

City officials said that if the pilot program is a success with the initial 500 migrant families, it will be expanded to all migrant families staying in hotels, which is 15,000 currently.
