The Hispanic Affairs Project has launched the Western Colorado Immigrant Relief Fund to provide direct assistance to undocumented immigrant families impacted by the loss of employment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The purpose of this fund is to help families who do not qualify for state and federal assistance due to their immigration status. At this time, assistance will be focused on residents living in the six county region served by HAP including Delta, Gunnison, Mesa, Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel counties.
HAP is currently defining the application process and criteria requirements. This information will be announced around mid-April depending on the amount of funds raised. In the meantime, HAP is also coordinating with local community organizations to ensure that community resources available now are reaching our immigrant communities. Upon distributing assistance through this relief fund, we will continue to coordinate with community partners to ensure that resources will have the maximum impact and that we are not duplicating services. If you have questions please call 970-249-4115 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
