Community Action and the Proposed Changes to the Public Charge Rule

Under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s recently proposed changes to the public charge rule, use of certain public benefits such as SNAP, Medicaid, and housing assistance would count as negative factors against legal immigrants when they apply for citizenship. The public comment period for the proposed rule has closed, and DHS is currently reviewing submitted comments.

The Community Action Partnership, NASCSP, and CAPLAW developed the following resources discussing the proposed changes and potential impact on Community Action Agencies.

CSBG and Head Start Crosswalk

CAAs that run Head Start programs are tasked with following two sets of different, yet overlapping, requirements that apply to the funding they receive under the CSBG and Head Start Acts. CAPLAW developed a crosswalk showing the connections between the two sets of requirements to help CAAs better understand the overlap and establish a more integrated approach to compliance.

Watch CAPLAW's Attorney Network webinar series "Legal Issues Unique to CAAs".

In this two-part webinar series, we pose questions and provide answers to help orient attorneys working with CAAs on some of the key legal requirements that impact the way CAAs operate. Rather than delve deeply into any one issue, we will help CAA attorneys spot a variety of CAA legal issues and identify CAPLAW resources that attorneys may refer to when working with CAAs on specific matters.
