Categories: Homepage, News

The San Francisco Chronicle last week published this useful Q&A on public benefits and emergency relief linked to the COVID-19 pandemic. Business columnist Kathleen Pender reached out to several Bay Area organizations serving public benefits recipients and unhoused people for answers on Economic Impact Payments, unemployment, and related topics. BayLegal Regional Managing Attorney for SSI Steven Weiss, and BayLegal Staff Attorney Jenna Statfeld Harris were among the participants, focusing on homeless outreach and BayLegal’s work to help applicants navigate the Economic Impact Payments system.
