A Comprehensive Review of Immigrant Access to Health and Human Services


This comprehensive literature review summarizes and describes the federal and state immigrant eligibility rules under the TANF, Medicaid/CHIP and SNAP programs. The existing landscape of immigrant eligibility is complex, shifting, and variable across and sometimes within states. The paper also summarizes immigration enforcement activities and other factors that might affect immigrant eligibility for benefits. Later phases of the project (i.e., purposive site visits) will provide more specific information about immigrant access to health and human services. [46 PDF pages]
