As component of an extraordinary $340,000,000 fund authorised this past year by state assembly, undocumented immigrants within Washington impacted by the epidemic could now submit an application for a fresh round of state aid.
For those who qualify, the WA COVID-19 Immigrant Relief Fund will send them a payment or debit card for at minimum 1,000 dollars somewhere between December and January.
Distressed undocumented immigrants, such as individuals who lost their employment, had their hours reduced, got affected by the virus, or fell behind with their housing or energy payments, or took care of a member of the family who screened positive, are qualified.
Beginning on Monday, submissions for the program will be received until November 14. The number of applicants will determine the precise amount of cash awarded to each grantee.
WA Announces Stimulus Check For The Undocumented Immigrants Too:
The program seeks to jam the void created by other initiatives started during the epidemic but ineligible for illegal immigrants, including such increased unemployment benefits or government stimulus check.
Candidates must reside in Washington, be at least 18 years old, and have gone through financial difficulty as a result of the epidemic. According to their immigrant status, applicants cannot have gotten government stimulus check employment benefits.
The Washington COVID-19 Immigrant Relief Fund does not provide assistance to those who received government assistance during the epidemic due of their unique immigrant status, like certain refugees, seeking asylum, and DACA beneficiaries.
Washington has now committed a total of around 467,000,000 towards easing the difficulties on unauthorized immigrants as during epidemic. With this most recent influx of funds.
Similar funds are run by New York, Oregon, California and a few municipal governments, namely Seattle plus King County.
WAISN representatives are adamant that they won’t provide the authorities, Customs enforcement, or law enforcement access to applicants or their personal information submitted with the applications of stimulus check. According to authorities, receiving assistance from the program won’t stop someone from applying for a green card.
