PAN’s COVID-19 Guides, including its Declaration Guide, 602 Appeals Guide, and Self-Help Litigation Guide, are not intended to give legal advice, but rather general legal information. When putting this Guide together, we did our best to give you useful and accurate information because we know that people who are currently or formerly incarcerated often have difficulty getting legal information. We will be updating these resources often as things change quickly. You will see a date on the guide. Please check back regularly or sign up for our email list to get updated versions.

The Sentencing Project has developed a new online resource for tracking cases of the novel coronavirus in juvenile facilities across the United States. At least 150 youth and over 200 staff members have been infected by COVID-19. In order to limit the spread of the virus, we must immediately enact reforms that relieve crowding in juvenile facilities and better serve the needs of young people.

CDC Guidance on Management of COVID-19 in Correctional and Detention Facilities

This document is intended to provide guiding principles for healthcare and non-healthcare administrators of correctional and detention facilities (including but not limited to federal and state prisons, local jails, and detention centers), law enforcement agencies that have custodial authority for detained populations (i.e., US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and US Marshals Service), and their respective health departments, to assist in preparing for potential introduction, spread, and mitigation of COVID-19 in their facilities. In general, the document uses terminology referring to correctional environments but can also be applied to civil and pre-trial detention settings.

They All Have Direct Ways We Can Help Out At This Time (e.g., by donating money, supplies, services, signing petitions, social media campaigns).
Pledge to protect the most Vulnerable during Covid 19
Our long time partner, Californians for Safety and Justice has asked everyone to sign this important petition. We know that people coming home from incarceration, and those living with past convictions face a myriad of legal restrictions, most urgently, barriers to housing and public benefits. In light of the pandemic, and calls for Americans to shelter in place, there needs to be swift and decisive action by national, state and local governments to do the following:
  • Restrict ALL bans on housing
  • Provide more resources for reentry service providers to provide tele-resources 
  • Put protocols in place for people on probation and parole (See Exit recommendations) 
  • Stop all ICE raids and deportations

Emergency Aid for Nonprofit Organizations Amidst COVID-19

The charitable sector is on the front lines of addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, but risks catastrophic damage from evaporating revenue, new demands, and major disruptions in charitable giving. Tell your legislators that Congress must provide emergency aid to nonprofit organizations by expanding charitable giving and providing organizations with grants, loans, and tax credits.

Community Partners recommends that if you haven’t yet heard from your funder, do get in touch with your program officer. Many foundations are relaxing reporting requirements, allowing grant dollars to be used for general operations, and finding other creative ways to work with their grantees. As of now, 440 funding organizations have signed onto this pledge with more detail into how they plan to serve their grantees during these times, including loosening restrictions. Beyond that, here is a list of new funds you might be eligible for, along with a couple of surveys to help assess the impact on our sector.

Answering the Top 5 COVID-19 Questions from California Nonprofits

  1. How do we access emergency government dollars for nonprofits to cover payroll and other “overhead” expenses?
  2. Aside from getting direct funding, what other financial benefits from the State of California (such as delayed payroll taxes) are available to nonprofits?
  3. Form 990: The CARES Act allows individuals and companies to file their tax returns by July 15 (rather than by the usual April 15). Does this also apply to Federal Form 990?
  4. What new benefits can we give to our current staff and to people we’ve laid off?
  5. What about the new charitable tax deduction?

United Way COVID-19 Relief Fund:

They have pened a short, online application that aims to collect information and provide direct support to nonprofits and community groups located and serving in LA County, in order to expand access to vital supplies for the homeless service response to COVID 19.
Elton John AIDS Foundation’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund is accepting applications for solutions that have strong potential to address specific challenges that have arisen for people already living with or at severe risk of HIV/AIDS and who are now at heightened risk as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Ahmanson Foundation Grants:

The Foundation reviews grant requests from 501(c)(3) organizations that are not private foundations  and that are based in and serving Los Angeles County.
In order to be responsive to the many needs of the Los Angeles community, the Foundation prefers to consider requests that are one-time or short-term in nature. Organizations that do not submit requests on a regular or annual basis will receive preference.

  • Ways to protect yourself and others
  • Immigration help
  • Public charge information for accessing public benefits

Corona Virus Helpful Info:

Everyone and every Department within LA County is working together to help slow the spread of this virus.  Public Health continues to recommend that the public do the following to protect themselves and others from respiratory illnesses:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unclean hands.
  • Limit close contact, like kissing and sharing cups or utensils, with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
  • Facemasks are most effective when used appropriately by health care workers and those directly caring for people who are sick and by people who are sick (source control).
  • Get a flu immunization to prevent influenza if you have not done so this season.

Always check with trusted sources for the latest accurate information about novel coronavirus:
