April 18, 2019: “Part 1: Public Benefits and Services Legally Available to Immigrant Children and Victims – What Courts Need to Know?” (Webinar)

This webinar serves as an introduction to NIWAP’s new state & federal public benefits state-by-state maps and charts that helps judges, courts, advocates and attorneys look up by immigration status who qualifies. Because of the variation in public benefits depending on an immigrant’s status and state, the map simplifies eligibility and allows judges to craft orders that immigrant families can comply with more easily.
