Equal Opportunities to Thrive: Covering Rebates, Tax/SSN/ITIN,
Food Security & Access to Food Programs
April 16, 2020 at 1:00 – 2:30 pm ET (10:00-11:30 pm PT)
Congress is taking steps to mitigate the harm of the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 relief bills didn’t go far enough, and failed to cover many immigrants. For example, the recovery rebate in the stimulus bill was not made available to taxpayers who filed with an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). Nevertheless, state and local advocates are engaged in incredible work to fill in some of the gaps left by the federal government. This includes advocacy to address issues of economic security & access to nutrition programs during these critical times. In this webinar, experts will discuss what the new COVID-19 relief laws provide to immigrants, the gaps left by the federal government and what some state and local advocates and allies are doing to fill in these gaps.
