Direct Cash Assistance

Averting Financial Crises

Impact Charitable’s emergency cash assistance, emergency rental assistance, and unemployment assistance programs aim to support communities in moments where they teeter on the edge of falling deeper into poverty. We intervene with emergency assistance that can provide critical economic stability, avert further economic crises, and put families on a path towards rebuilding.

Left Behind Workers Fund

The Left Behind Workers Fund Cash Assistance program provided direct cash payments of $1,000 to undocumented Colorado workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and overlooked by federal assistance programs. To date, the Left Behind Workers Fund has provided $32 million to workers across the State, making it the largest pandemic assistance program serving the undocumented community in Colorado.

Left Behind Workers Fund Rental Assistance

The Left Behind Workers Fund Rental Assistance program provided rental assistance to undocumented individuals in need of emergency rental support to avert evictions and keep families stably housed. To date, the Left Behind Workers Fund Rental Assistance program has distributed over $6 million.

Benefit Recovery Fund

Undocumented employees, due to their immigration status, cannot receive unemployment insurance. To address this inequity, Colorado created the Benefit Recovery Fund to enable undocumented employees to receive unemployment assistance. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE)’s Office of New Americans (ONA), in partnership with AidKit and Impact Charitable, are helping to launch this first-of-its-kind program in fall 2023.
