If you’re an immigrant living in Washington State, you are not eligible for federal stimulus funds or unemployment insurance due to your immigration status, and you’ve experienced hard times because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can apply for the Washington COVID-19 Immigrant Relief Fund. If your application is approved, you could receive a payment of at least $1,000. It is not a loan, and you will not have to pay anything back. The application is open from September 19, 2022 to November 14, 2022. It’s always free to apply.
To apply, visit www.immigrantrelifwa.org. If you want to get free help with your application, you can contact one of the community organizations listed on the website, or call (253) 237-0726, or 844-620-1999.
8 AYDEPI Youth Leaders (University Students) and 8 Community Navigators will help to reach the communities and support them in application assistance.
