Food Not Fear: Sign onto public comments on proposed public charge rule.
Northwest Harvest joins anti-hunger advocates from across the country in applauding a proposed rule from the Department of Homeland Security that leaves out SNAP, Medicaid, and housing programs from consideration in the public charge test, used when evaluating an immigrant’s application for permission to visit or reside in the United States. We continue to see under-utilization by immigrants who are lawfully eligible to use these and other food assistance programs, and as a result, deeper hunger in immigrant communities. Please join the Protecting Immigrant Families Campaign (PIF) in signing onto comments in support of this rule change and making additional recommendations for improvement to increase eligible immigrants’ access of resources to help them through economic crises.
Actions must be taken before April 21.
