The Philadelphia Benefits Access Coalition will be holding a training session on Immigrant Eligibility for and Access to Public Benefits! The workshop will cover basic eligibility criteria for some of the major public benefits programs (including SNAP, TANF, Medicaid, and CHIP) as they relate to immigration status. The training will also address the common barriers faced by some immigrant populations, which can limit access to benefits even for those who are eligible for services. This interactive workshop will be led by experts from Community Legal Services and the Nationalities Service Center. We will also provide an advocacy update with information on proposed or upcoming changes to public benefits programs, and opportunities to get more involved with efforts to preserve and improve valued social safety net programs.
