Immigrants and their families face unique barriers to basic health care and nutrition assistance, including laws that restrict even lawfully present immigrants’ access to federal means-tested benefits. Immigrants and their children—many of whom are U.S. citizens—are less likely to use programs like SNAP or Medicaid even when they are eligible, due to confusing rules and immigration-related concerns. CLASP works to protect access to critical benefits and income supports for all children and families who need them, regardless of immigration status.
