What Funders Need to Know About "Public Charge": An Analysis of the Published Rule

October 18, 2018 4:00 pm Eastern Time

Cosponsored with Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees

The recently proposed “public charge” rule would allow federal officials to consider immigrants’ use of Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the Medicare Part D Low-Income Subsidy Program, and several housing programs in determining whether to deny entry into the United States or make adjustments to legal permanent resident status. The proposed changes would likely lead to decreased enrollment in public programs among legal immigrant families and their primarily U.S.-born children, undermining philanthropic efforts to reduce poverty, improve health and well-being, and expand opportunities for low-income children and families. Listeners learned more about the proposed rule and discussed ways that funders can take action. Speakers included Olivia Golden of the Center for Law and Social Policy and Marielena Hincapié of the National Immigration Law Center.
