The Oregon Worker Relief Fund provides financial support directly to Oregonians who have lost their jobs and are ineligible for Unemployment Insurance and federal stimulus relief due to their immigration status, and are now experiencing economic hardship. APANO is a partner organization helping Asian and Pacific Islander Oregon workers apply for these funds.
