The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) in collaboration with the Illinois Department of Human Services and the Illinois Immigration Funders Collaborative are providing direct assistance to families that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic consequences. Note: “Applicants whose application is approved will receive a one-time $1,000 grant.” This state financial assistance initiative is open to undocumented immigrants and their loved ones who meet additional eligibility requirements listed below and as ICIRR notes on their website, “Recipients of these services will not be subject to Public Charge.”
Who is eligible for financial assistance? “Low-income immigrants who live in Illinois, have seen a reduction in their income due to COVID-19 and who are NOT eligible for the federal stimulus package, unemployment insurance, or public benefits are welcomed to apply. This fund is limited to a one-time grant per household.”
To learn more about this state financial assistance and to apply, please visit ICIRR’s official website: Covid-19 Immigrant Family Support Project
