CA Rural Legal Assistance FoundationCOVID-19 Information and Resources for Immigrant Communities
California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation (CRLAF) and the Sacramento FUEL Network for Immigrants have prepared an informational flyer (attached) to support immigrant communities in the Central Valley as families navigate the immense uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Topics covered include legal, healthcare, employment, housing, food assistance, census, and other areas of concern, specifically as they relate to immigrants or immigration status. 


CA Rural Legal Assistance FoundationDisaster Relief Assistance for Immigrants
On April 15, Governor Newsom announced one-time disaster relief assistance for undocumented Californians impacted by COVID-19, who are ineligible for most other forms of pandemic assistance, including direct assistance under the CARES Act and unemployment insurance. Eligible Californians may receive one-time COVID-19 disaster relief assistance at a value of $500. A limit of two adults per household can receive this assistance (maximum assistance of $1,000 per household). For more information about the program, please visit https://covid19.ca.gov/guide-immigrant-californians/

CRLAF is encouraging individuals to apply ASAP. Funds are available on a first-come first-served basis.


CA Rural Legal Assistance FoundationPublic Charge information for immigrants from California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation
Recent changes to public charge policies have caused families to disenroll from public benefits, and others have delayed applying for immigration relief. At the California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation (CRLAF), we believe that we must fight the fear and confusion with facts. Everyone has rights in this country, especially in the state of California, no matter their immigration status, to access health care and certain public benefits. To help families and community advocates better understand changes to public charge, CRLAF has created a short training video in Spanish entitled Carga Pública: ¿Qué es y se aplica a mí?

We have also divided the longer 15 minute training into easier shorter videos:

At this time, the videos are only available in Spanish, and we hope to have videos available in English soon. Please help us distribute this information widely. By informing ourselves, we can not only untangle the mess of public charge policies, but also dispel rumors, misconceptions, and fears among our community.

For any immigration questions or free consultations, please refer individuals to CRLAF's mainline (916) 446-7901.
