2021 Housing + Immigration Priorities

CRLAF is proud to announce our new partnership with Blue Shield of California (BSCF). In 2021, we will especially prioritize the work of our housing and immigration teams. CRLAF recently co-sponsored a bill that took effect January 1, 2021, enacting protections for homeowners facing COVID-related foreclosures. We are now in the process of developing a legislative response to provide longer-term protections from eviction for non-payment of rent due to COVID-related loss of income.

CRLAF’s immigration team will continue responding to requests for assistance with initial DACA applications, help current DACA recipients renew their DACA permits, and carry forward applications for naturalization and removal defense cases. It has been important, especially throughout the course of this pandemic, for us to ensure our client communities have the most up-to-date information on both immigration regulations and safety-net resources that impact their health and economic well-being.

We deeply appreciate BSCF’s unwavering support that allows us to provide direct services for rural families, many of whom are living without adequate housing, safe water, healthy food or health care while continuing to work so that we can all have food on our tables.

As Debbie I. Chang, MPH, President & CEO of the BSCF states, “We are incredibly proud to support the California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation and their powerful work to address racial injustice, economic inequality and health inequity. Together, we are building a brighter future for all California residents.”
