1999 Guidance on Public Charge is Now in Effect

Back to News

The 1999 guidance on public charge (the policy that was in place before the 2019 public charge rule) is now in effect. It is safe for immigrants and their families to access health, nutrition, and housing programs for which they are eligible. If you have an active immigration case, or are considering filing one, and want to know how this change will affect your case, please call CACCI’s Immigration Resource Center at (508) 771-1727.
