UFW Foundation to help undocumented immigrants apply for Disaster Relief Assistance during pandemic

May 18, 2020 /

As part of the California’s Immigrant Assistance Program, the UFW Foundation on Monday began helping provide financial assistance to undocumented immigrants who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This funding is part of the Disaster Relief Assistance for Immigrants project, a one-time California state-funded disaster relief assistance program for undocumented adult immigrants impacted by COVID-19 in California.

In order to apply, the applicant must be able to provide information that he/she is an undocumented adult (person over the age of 18); is not eligible for federal COVID-19 related assistance, like the CARES Act tax stimulus payments or pandemic unemployment benefits; and has experienced hardship as a result of the pandemic.

Applicants must provide information and documents to verify their identity, home or mailing address, and to show they have been impacted by COVID-19.

The UFW Foundation will help people fill out an application and confirm one’s eligibility. Applicants will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Funding is limited, and disaster relief application services and assistance are not guaranteed.

You can submit your request for assistance by phone by calling 1-877-527-6660.

The information applicants provide to the UFW Foundation will only be used to confirm their eligibility and provide assistance. The nonprofit organization will provide general demographic information (e.g. age, gender, preferred language, etc.) to the State of California about applicants, but will not provide personal information (e.g. name, address, etc.).
