The COVID-19 pandemic put the systemic failures of our health care, labor, economic and public safety infrastructure on full display. Our communities have been uninsured, underpaid, and over-policed long before this crisis struck.

 

As the faults of these systems are laid bare, we have an opportunity and responsibility to fight for a vision of a world where the most vulnerable are not left out but also given the opportunity to live lives of dignity and respect.

 

The  COVID-19 Immigrant Family Support Project is just one avenue to respond to the needs of our communities.

 

The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights in collaboration with the Illinois Department of Human Services and the Illinois Immigration Funders Collaborative will provide direct assistance to families that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic consequences. ICIRR and IDHS will work with Illinois Welcoming Centers (IWC), Immigrant Family Resource Program (IFRP), and New Americans Initiative (NAI) partners with current contracts to deliver this much needed program. 

Through this partnership, ICIRR is looking to serve one of the most underserved populations through this crisis: low-income immigrants who live in Illinois, have seen a reduction in their income due to Covid-19, and who are not eligible for the federal stimulus package, unemployment insurance, or public benefits.  


Funds will be dispersed through community-based organizations, who will screen applicants and determine eligibility. Recipients of these services will not be subject to Public Charge.   Our trusted partner organizations have existing contracts with IDHS/ICIRR through the New Americans Initiative, Immigrant Family Resource Program or are part of the Illinois Welcoming Centers.  As such, they already provide immigration services and have the expertise and experience to assist immigrants with wrap-around support, including direct services or referrals to legal, social, health, and mental health resources. 

Please note that application submission does NOT guarantee approval of request.
