Catholic Charities Hotline for Disaster Relief Assistance (DRA) for Immigrants

The State of California's Department of Social Services has announced the Disaster Recovery Assistance to Immigrants Program (DRAI). The state has reached out to social service contractors serving immigrants and asked for these nonprofit partners to help distribute financial assistance to immigrants who are ineligible for any other federal or state aid due to their undocumented status. Catholic Charities of California has been asked to administrate the DRAI program in the Bay Area through each of the local Catholic Charities agencies. Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County along with Catholic Charities of San Francisco and Catholic Charities of the East Bay will work together over the next seven weeks (May 18th to June 30th) to distribute approximately $15 million in disaster relief to approximately 35,000 undocumented immigrants. Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County's Economic Development Immigration Legal Services team is coordinating the immigration disaster assistance.

For more information or to apply, contact Catholic Charities at 415.324.1011 or visit their DRA webpage.


Extra EBT COVID-19 Relief Funds

The California Department of Social Services has a new program whereby they will disburse dollars to families currently participating in the free and reduced priced meal program.  Each eligible student can qualify for $5.70 per day for each day that school has been closed.  The formula is included in the FAQ's.  The disbursements will be on the family's EBT card.  If your family isn't participating in the EBT program, you will have to sign up.

For more information or to apply, contact California's EBT Customer Service Call Center at 1.877.328.9677. The center is open 24/7.
