Tuesday, April 21, 2020

Hosch Associate Professor and Community Health Law Partnership Clinic Director Jason A. Cade received a Flom Incubator Grant from the Skadden Foundation to address the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic for immigrant families and other uniquely vulnerable communities in Athens and surrounding rural areas. Cade and a coalition of partners will use the $10,000 grant to rapidly develop and launch a novel model for engaging in remote screening, advice and advocacy aimed at addressing the most pressing civil legal needs for immigrant and other low-income individuals and families. If successful, the project design could be expanded and replicated to effectively provide remote services for various hard-to-reach communities in Georgia and elsewhere, both during and beyond the current pandemic, according to Cade.
