Dec 04, 2020    |   COVID-19 Resources & Information

Millions of immigrants are working on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, risking their health and well-being every day to keep our society going. And yet, many immigrants were left out of the CARES Act relief.

The San Mateo County Immigrant Relief Fund provides financial assistance for residents who have been economically impacted by COVID-19 and are not eligible for state or federal assistance. Immigrants may be eligible to receive a $500 grant to help cover whatever is most pressing in their lives.

  • Earned less than $99,000 or total household income below $198,000 in 2019.
