Refugees, successful asylum seekers, trafficking victim visa holders,“Cuban-Haitian Entrants”(which are mostly Cuban), S.I.V’s (for Iraqis and Afghanis) and other smaller humanitarian admission groups are eligible for ALL federal, state and local welfare programs 30 days after arrival.

Refugee access to welfare on the same basis as a U.S. citizen has made the program a global magnet.

The federal programs available to them include:

&#8729; Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) formerly known as AFDC
&#8729; Medicaid
&#8729; Food Stamps
&#8729; Public Housing
&#8729; Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
&#8729; Social Security Disability Insurance
&#8729; Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD)(direct services only)
&#8729; Child Care and Development Fund
&#8729; Independent Living Program
&#8729; Job Opportunities for Low Income Individuals (JOLI)
&#8729; Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
&#8729; Postsecondary Education Loans and Grants
&#8729; Refugee Assistance Programs
&#8729; Title IV Foster Care and Adoption Assistance Payments (if parents are &#8992;qualified immigrants – refugees, asylees, etc)
&#8729; Title XX Social Services Block Grant Funds

. Welfare use is staggering among refugees. Welfare usage is never counted by officials as part of the cost of the program. Yet, when it is included, the total cost of the refugee program soars to at least 10-20 billion a year.

As some Americans are pushed off of time-limited welfare programs many refugees are going on to life-time cash assistance programs. For instance, 12.7% of refugees are on SSI – a lifetime entitlement to a monthly check / Medicaid for elderly or disabled. This rate of usage is at least 4 times higher than the rate of usage for SSI among the native-born population and is reportedly rising from these already very high levels.

Permanent and intergenerational welfare dependence has been allowed to take hold to a significant degree in some refugee groups.

If any of "you people" who refer to Refugees as "these people" were born into the type of circumstance that allows them the help they need and deserve, you would curl up and die in a corner.
Try living a day in a Refugees shoes, there but for the luck of the draw goes any one of us.

There are grants available to help with closing costs. These grants are available to ALL first time homebuyers, not just refugees. I believe you have to take some classes on responsible home ownership to qualify. It's through the homeownership center in Utica.
Don't be so bitter.

I realize that and don't necessarily agree with it. I was just responding to the original poster that stated refugees get grants for closing. It's not just for refugees
