alamedasocialservices.org

Along with the County of Alameda, CA - Government Board of Supervisors and the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency, we strongly oppose the Trump Administration’s changes to an outdated and unnecessary federal administrative rule known as “public charge”.

As a reminder, the rules for California’s public assistance benefits have not changed. This includes all eligibility guidelines and access to benefits for legal permanent residents and clients with qualifying immigrant status remain intact. We want to help our clients continue to receive the assistance they and their families are eligible to receive.

Anyone concerned about applying for benefits or considering removal from benefits should consult an immigration attorney.
