WIC Initiative - Multilingual Resources

Through the WIC Immigrant Outreach Initiative, ICIRR in partnership with the Illinois Department of Human Services enhance immigrants’ access to public benefits for which they are eligible. Our project supports outreach, education, and interpretation services for immigrants through the work of 8 community-based organizations funded statewide specifically to support these activities.

We also have resources in different languages to make sure Limited English Proficient (LEP's) participants receive clear and concise information.
