Immigrant Family Resource Program (IFRP)
The Immigrant Family Resource Program (IFRP) is a contract between immigrant-serving organizations in Illinois, The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, and the Illinois Department of Human Services to support immigrant access to public benefits.
The goal of the IFRP is to ensure that low-income immigrant families and other limited-English speaking persons are able to thrive by reducing barriers when seeking public benefits (nutritional, medical, housing, psychological, childcare, employment), as well as the cash support they need for proper health, well-being, and economic self-sufficiency.
We currently partner with a number of community-based organizations with capacity in 59 languages. Here is a complete list our partner organizations with direct contact information for IFRP services.
