Public Benefits Access

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.

Through a network of 37 ethnic community-based organizations operating in 59 different languages across Illinois, communities are provided equal access to health and safety-net services.
