State Snapshots of Public Benefits for Immigrants: A Supplemental Report to "Patchwork Policies." Occasional Paper Number 24, Supplemental Report. Assessing the New Federalism: An Urban Institute Program To Assess Changing Social Policies.
Tumlin, Karen C.; Zimmermann, Wendy; Ost, Jason
As a supplement to an analysis of the devolution of policymaking for immigrants from the federal government to the states, this report provides a one-page summary of each state's immigrant eligibility rules for cash, food, and health assistance programs. It also notes state naturalization initiatives begun or expanded in the wake of welfare reform, and includes some background information on each state's immigrant population and economy. Unless otherwise noted, all data on immigrant eligibility and program rules were current as of summer/fall 1998. Each profile contains graphs of population by nativity and citizenship, and of noncitizen population by poverty level. (SLD)
