CBPP to Hold Webinars on Stimulus Check Outreach and Cash Assistance for Families with Immigrants

Date Published: 
April 20th, 2021

From the Center on Budget & Policy Priorities' Get It Back Campaign:

Recognizing the urgent need to reach millions of non-filers, some of whom may be eligible for three rounds of stimulus payments worth up to $3,200, the Get it Back Campaign is launching a new multilingual stimulus outreach toolkit. We’ll discuss opportunities to use the toolkit and conduct outreach to vulnerable populations in a webinar this Thursday. Another webinar from CBPP next Monday will highlight the role and opportunity for states and advocates to help make sure families with immigrants have access to the support they need.  


Webinar 1 

What: Stimulus Check Outreach Part II: Hard-to-reach Populations

When: Thursday, April 22, 2021, 3:00pm – 4:15pm ET

Registration: https://cbpp.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_rulV4QrITHOBX3uEjo6SXw  

Many harder to reach communities risk missing out on three rounds of stimulus checks and need direct support. Conducting outreach to communities such as families with immigrants, people experiencing homelessness, people with disabilities, and people with limited internet access is also needed as these populations may also qualify for more money through 2021 tax credit expansions like the Child Tax Credit.

Along with guests from Code for America and Tax Help Colorado, this training will cover how to: 
- Use our new outreach toolkit to reach out in your community 
- Build partnerships to expand your impact 
- Assist people to successfully file a tax return even if you aren’t a tax preparer 
- Navigate outreach barriers and challenges  


Webinar 2

What: The American Rescue Plan and Cash Assistance for Families that Include Immigrants 

When: Monday, April 26, 2021, 4:00pm – 5:00pm 

Register: https://cbpp.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Ngm0ZEiUSNOuebwJx3gpoA 

What the American Rescue Plan (ARP) will mean for state and local governments is slowly coming into focus. What is clear is that states will still need to play a role in maximizing the reach of benefits and filling gaps that arise. As in past federal relief packages, immigrants who are undocumented are excluded from some key forms of assistance such as stimulus payments and enhanced unemployment insurance.

This webinar will feature four speakers who have been at the forefront of efforts by state advocates to push policymakers to provide the resources and assistance that excluded families and workers need. Each advocate will describe the advances their coalitions secured and discuss barriers and landmines they needed to overcome. 

Speakers include:

  • Margaret Babayan, Senior Policy Analyst with the Washington State Budget and Policy Center   
  • James C. Jimenez, Executive Director of New Mexico Voices for Children   
  • David Kallick, Deputy Director and Director of Immigration Research of New York’s Fiscal Policy Institute   
  • Kathy White, Deputy Director of the Colorado Fiscal Institute
