Federal initiatives

Foreign nationals work various jobs that contribute to economic growth. Because of that, they have access to these support programs in order to help them get ahead. Not everyone who applies is eligible as their immigration or undocumented status usually makes a difference. Read more about it here.

Social Security, food stamps, and medical benefits may be accessible to immigrant families. But, you have to meet certain requirements. People who are considered undocumented won’t qualify but their children may, depending on their status.

The benefits covered are:

  • SNAP (food stamps)
  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  • ACA (Obamacare)

Benefit eligibility is based on reported income, family size, and immigration status.

Violence supports

If you’ve migrated to the US seeking asylum or refuge there are also programs available. People having problems with violence, human trafficking or conditions considered inhumane may also apply for assistance.

The TANF program provides cash to low income families with kids to help the family become self-sufficient. SNAP is another example, providing money to access food. There are additional programs available at both the federal and state levels.
