    Product Description


    Note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this program has been rescheduled and is now available online only as a live or recorded webcast.

    This all-day training offers the nuts-and-bolts on how immigration status affects eligibility for benefits for non-citizen immigrants and refugees. The trainers include both immigration lawyers and legal experts in different public benefit programs.  It will cover basic information about immigrants in Massachusetts, how immigration status affects public benefits in general and an overview of the most commonly seen types of immigration status and documents. It will include the latest information about the “public charge” rule that changes how certain benefits are treated for immigration purposes. Participants will hear from experts on the immigrant eligibility rules in specific programs including the TAFDC, EAEDC and SSI cash assistance programs; the SNAP (food stamps) program;  MassHealth and other subsidized health programs; state and federal subsidized housing programs; and EA shelter. There will also be a panel to review immigrant eligibility for new benefits available during the COVID-19 pandemic.
