for Immigrant Families
Immigrant Family Resource Program (IFRP) is a state-wide program that seeks to ensure that immigrant families and other limited English-speaking persons in Illinois are able to thrive, by reducing the barriers that low-income immigrants and their children face when seeking public benefits and services (nutritional, medical, housing, psychological, childcare, employment) as well as the cash support they need for proper health, well-being and economic self-sufficiency.
- We can help eligible immigrant families apply for public aid benefits such as; Medicaid, SNAP (link card), TANF, Child Support and other public aid programs.
- Provide information and referrals for other services available in the community.
- Provide interpretation and translation services when accessing these programs.
- Assist with the application and navigation process for other non-IDHS services such as; rental assistance, Driver License/ID applications, Social Security programs, passport applications and several other services.
IFRP is a joint collaboration between the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR), the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS), and 35 ethnic, community-based organizations across Illinois.
