Admin Relief Quick Flyers:
How does an organization prepare for administrative relief?
You can start preparing for administrative relief by ensuring that you have the necessary infrastructure to assist people with enrollment and information dissemination. It will be months until an application is released so please get informed and help people get documentation.
You should plan to:
-Prepare internal systems
-Accounting systems in place
Due to the large number of people expected to apply, plan to recruit and train volunteers, as well as, build relationships with legal providers. This is an excellent opportunity to further engage community members and grow your base.
What information should we disseminate to the community?
Right now, please tell people to stay away from notarios. People should start putting together their documents that demonstrate they have lived in the United States such as school records, medical records, bank records, leases/rent payments, and/or employment records.
