Public Charge and Immigration

Public charge does not apply to all immigrants or all benefit programs. Each situation is different and there are many benefits not considered in the public charge assessment. Available to you are community agencies and resources that can provide information and advice specific to you and your family situation. Click on the tabs below to learn more.

We advise anyone concerned about how this change may impact their immigration circumstance to review the rule and to talk to a legal expert. CCHS and its employees cannot offer legal advice.
