In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, federal, state, and local governments are creating relief programs to provide services and resources to community members facing health and financial challenges. However, due in part to the overlapping timeline of coronavirus and the implementation of new public charge rules, many immigrant community members are fearful of utilizing available relief programs. In this 60-minute webinar, we will provide a brief overview of public charge, share policy updates on public charge topics, and discuss various emerging public charge issues related to COVID-19. The webinar will provide an overview of various relief programs, explain how use of those programs could trigger public charge consequences, and discuss how to distinguish benefits programs that immigrants might access because of financial hardship stemming from COVID-19 from COVID-19 emergency programs insofar as public charge ramifications. Note: this will be a California-focused webinar.
