Finally: a Relief Fund for Immigrant Workers

Finally, immigrant workers can get support for the impacts caused by COVID.

Recognizing that immigrant workers are critical to communities throughout Washington, the state has opened a relief fund to provide $40 million. The funds come from the federal government, but have been allocated by the state. The purpose is to support Washington undocumented workers who miss work due to COVID-19 but are unable to access federal stimulus programs and other social supports due to their immigration status. Eligible recipients can receive $1,000, with a limit of $3,000 per household for as long as the fund continues.

To apply to the Washington COVID-19 Immigrant Relief Fund, go to The deadline is December 6. Benefits will be disbursed by December 28.
