This video includes information about emergency Medicaid for COVID-19 testing and treatment for immigrants who are not usually eligible for Medicaid; Pandemic-EBT (SNAP) for school children who get free or reduced price lunch, which are benefits that will not count against you for public charge analysis; unemployment insurance for those with employment authorization; housing and the eviction moratorium; safety, abuse and how to get a restraining order; USCIS and courts in the public health emergency.

“Public Charge Rule” is a test applied by USCIS (immigration) when someone is applying for a green card for the first time or applying for admission to the U.S. to make sure they will not become a burden on the government.

Most state courthouses and clerk’s offices have re-opened to the public. If you have questions about the status of your case or about visiting the court in person, you can call the court where your case is being heard and follow the instructions to speak with a court staff person, email questions to a Court Service Center staff person, or look up your case online.
