PUBLIC CHARGE: WILL NOT BE IMPACTED BY RECEIVING TREATMENT FOR COVID-19
Accessing a free clinic or government benefits for coronavirus testing or treatment will NOT be considered under the "public charge" inadmissibility rule in an immigration case. United States Customs and Immigration Services has issued the following statement explaining this decision and the reasoning for it.
On March 24th, 2020, Governor Ducey issued an Executive Order preventing landlords from evicting tenants who are unable to pay rent due to the pandemic. If you have have lost your job, lost wages, or have health conditions that put you at high risk for COVID-19, you can use the forms below from Community Legal Services to notify your landlord.
Many immigrant families are excluded from the stimulus funds provided by the CARES Act. Several funds have been established throughout the country to provide cash assistance directly to those families who will not receive that help. You can apply directly to these funds for assistance, or through the community organizations distributing the funds.
