Public Benefits

Funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services and Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.

The Public Benefits Assistance Program assists clients in applying for various forms of government assistance, including Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Benefits, Senior Ride Free Program and much more.

The program combats the three most common barriers clients face in ensuring their welfare:

  1. Complicated procedures required to receive public benefits
  2. Limited ability to communicate in English
  3. The persistence of misinformation related to public benefits.
