Forwarded on behalf of California Human Development. Please help to spread the word, this assistance opens May 18, 2020 and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Respectfully, Sonoma COAD Exec Team

Dear Community Leader,

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, 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 across the state. The California Department of Social Services has selected California Human Development as an immigrant-serving nonprofit organization for the Northern California region.

An undocumented adult who qualifies can receive $500 in direct assistance, with a maximum of $1000 in assistance per household. Please help us ensure that all undocumented residents of the following counties calls (707) 228-1338 for application assistance beginning Monday, May 18, 2020: Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, Del Norte, El Dorado, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Mendocino, Modoc, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Solano, Sonoma Tehama, Trinity

Eligible individuals must be able to provide information that they (1) are an undocumented adult (person over the age of 18); (2) are not eligible for federal COVID-19 related assistance, like the CARES Act tax stimulus payments or pandemic unemployment benefits; and, (3) have experienced a hardship as a result of COVID-19. Eligible individuals must provide information and documents to verify your identity, home or mailing address, and to show you have been impacted by COVID-19.

Thank you in advance for your collaboration and for helping California Human Development spread the word. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Kai Harris or myself.

Sincerely, Guadalupe Navarro Disaster Relief Assistance for Immigrants, Project Manager California Human Development
