Get the facts about public charge & immigration
Rules about public benefit programs and immigrants are confusing. But benefits can help your family stay healthy and thrive. Everyone in the community must have access to health care and important support services, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, many immigrants do not seek the services available to them for fear it will impact their immigration case. This webinar provided an overview of what public charge is, who it applies to, and the latest information on how the public charge test works. It will also give updates on which public benefits, tax credits, COVID-19 relief, and emergency response programs are available and won’t affect a green card or visa eligibility.
