Please join the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center for the fourth event in our five-part Public Benefits Training Series: Immigrant Eligibility for Public Benefits. This series is sponsored by the Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia, Legal Counsel for the Elderly, Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, and Whitman-Walker Health.
This training will feature a pre-recorded training on Immigrant Eligibility for Public Benefits and a live webinar to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the programs. Prior to the webinar, registrants will receive the training video and materials.
Eligibility for public benefits for non-citizens is complicated. In the pre-recorded training, Allison Miles-Lee (Bread for the City) and Cori Alonso-Yoder (Howard Law, formerly Whitman-Walker Health) will provide an introductory overview of immigrant eligibility for D.C. and federal public benefit programs. Presenters will also provide an overview of common immigration statuses for D.C. area residents, the public charge ground of inadmissibility, and immigration status and eligibility for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
During the live webinar on November 3rd, Allison and Cori will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on immigrant eligibility and answer questions from attendees.
