    Product Description


    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 covers 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 proposed "public charge" rule that may change how benefits are treated for immigration purposes in the future as well as a "know your rights" session for community organizations to address fears among immigrants whom they serve. In the afternoon, 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, and MassHealth and other subsidized health programs. Also addressed is immigrant eligibility for state and federal subsidized housing programs and EA shelter.
