Undocumented immigrants in California can begin applying Monday for financial assistance to support them during the coronavirus pandemic — in the first relief fund of its kind. Gov. Gavin Newsom announced the $125 million coronavirus disaster relief fund last month to support undocumented immigrants who were ineligible for federal stimulus checks and unemployment benefits due to their immigration status. The one-time benefit will provide $500 of support per adult, with a cap of $1,000 per household, Newsom's office said. It’s expected to benefit about 150,000 undocumented adults, according to the state's website.
