    Product Description

    This all-day training offers the nuts-and-bolts on how immigration status affects eligibility for state and federal public benefits. In the morning, you get an overview of how immigrants obtain legal status, how to read immigration documents in order to understand a person’s legal status, and updates on any new immigration statuses, or other federal developments affecting access to benefits. You also learn from health law experts about MassHealth and other subsidized health care programs available to immigrants and their dependents. In the afternoon, you hear from benefits experts about other public benefits potentially available to low-income legal immigrants including: state and federal subsidized housing programs, emergency shelter, cash assistance (TAFDC and EAEDC) and the federal SNAP and child nutrition programs.
