COVID-19 Disaster Relief Assistance for Immigrants
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the state of California is providing one-time state-funded disaster relief assistance to undocumented adults who are ineligible for other forms of assistance, including assistance under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and pandemic unemployment benefits, because of their immigration status. This state funding is expected to reach about 150,000 undocumented adults.
The California Department of Social Services has selected twelve immigrant-serving nonprofit organizations to help individuals apply for and receive this disaster relief assistance in their region. An undocumented adult who qualifies can receive $500 in direct assistance, with a maximum of $1000 in assistance per household.
You can call these two organizations that will be assisting individuals who live in Orange County:
Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights-CHIRLA
(213) 201-8700 or (213) 395-9547
Asian Americans Advancing Justice
