According to DREAM Iowa, DACA recipients, H1B visa holders, green card holders, and certain work visa holders will receive payments through the stimulus program created in the CARES Act. Funding should be available to anyone with a valid Social Security number.
If a student did not receive stimulus funding and will not be allowed to receive funding from the CARES Act that Grand View will demonstrate, see GV Cares as a viable source of relief.

For direct assistance to immigrants and children of immigrants, see this local effort launched in Central Iowa: A $75,000 investment has been made from the Disaster Recovery Fund to support the Central Iowa Immigrant Community Support Fund. The Central Iowa Immigrant Community Support Fund is an initiative of AFSC Iowa, Al Exito and Proteus that supports the most marginalized Central Iowans who have needs that fall outside of government guidelines or who do not qualify for government assistance resources during this global pandemic. The funds will assist the most vulnerable community members in acquiring their most basic needs (rent, utilities, transportation, medicine, etc.) for their families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
