If you’re an immigrant experiencing hard times because of COVID-19, and you aren’t eligible for federal financial relief or unemployment insurance, this fund is for you.
The Washington COVID-19 Immigrant Relief Fund is a disaster relief program for Washington state’s low-income immigrant residents and their households.
The program uses federal CARES Act funds to provide a $1,000 cash grant to eligible individuals. Applicants need to be at least 18 years old and a resident of Washington state who have been significantly affected by the coronavirus pandemic and not eligible for federal stimulus payments or unemployment insurance benefits due to immigration status.
This fund is led by immigrant organizations who will not share your information with the government. Receiving assistance from this fund should not impact your ability to get a green card.
The application is in multiple languages and you can get help applying. Read more here and apply by 5/15/21.
