The United States government has a variety of programs that help low-income immigrants. In this article, we will explore how companies and organizations are trying to alleviate the situation that exists in the country for many immigrants.
US government programs for immigrants vary depending on which country you are in. If you are a Cuban citizen entering the United States, the government will give you assistance with money and housing for a period of six months.
If you are an undocumented immigrant who is in the United States, they can help you with money and housing for five years if it is a public or private charity who helps you and you are under 21 years of age.
If you need medical help in the US, you can receive assistance with money and housing for two years if you have a medical condition that provides aid to the government.
If you are undocumented and you are working in the US, they can help you with money for housing for three years if it is private help who helps you and you have a number of children under 18 years of age.
