On March 9, 2021, the U.S. Department of Justice decided to stop defending the Trump-era public charge regulations. The U.S. Supreme Court dismissed the pending appeals. This means that the lower court decision to vacate the public charge rule is now in effect. This means that the 2019 Final Public Charge rule is permanently blocked, nationwide. This notice will be revised as further updates develop.
To limit any confusion related to the Final Public Charge rule and its effects, community resources related to the now blocked regulations will be archived. They are available upon request.
