WA Immigrant Relief Fund
APIC SPS is happy to be part of the network that brings resources and relief to our community. If you’re an immigrant living in Washington State, you aren’t eligible for federal stimulus funds or unemployment insurance due to your immigration status, and you’ve experienced hard times because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can apply for the Washington COVID-19 Immigrant Relief Fund. If your application is approved, you could receive a payment of at least $1,000. It is not a loan, and you will not have to pay anything back. Your information is safe and protected: it will never be voluntarily shared with the government or ICE. The public charge rule should not apply for this fund. You can apply or get help with your application in multiple languages. The application is open from September 19, 2022 to November 14, 2022. It’s always free to apply.

Student Debt Loan Forgiveness

On Aug. 24, 2022, the Biden-Harris Administration announced a Student Debt Relief Plan that includes one-time student loan debt relief targeted to low- and middle-income families.

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) will provide up to $20,000 in debt relief to Federal Pell Grant recipients and up to $10,000 in debt relief to non-Pell Grant recipients. Borrowers with loans held by ED are eligible for this relief if their individual income is less than $125,000 (or $250,000 for households).
