Emergency Public Assistance
As of March 9, 2021, Trump’s discriminatory, expanded Public Charge rule is permanently BLOCKED, and is no longer in effect anywhere in the United States. Now, immigrants can safely get public benefits that support their health, nutrition, and housing without fear of impact on their immigration status.
Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) provides families financial support to cover the cost of groceries while school is closed. This benefit is provided to ALL families whose children receive free and reduced-price school meals in Oregon.
You may be eligible for financial help during the pandemic if your work income is affected by COVID or you have children in need.
