The DuPage County Continuum of Care (CoC) offers grant recipients resources to assist with meeting specific grant requirements for which they are responsible, or CoC-wide training sessions to provide relevant educational and informational opportunities for CoC providers and community partners.
Public Benefits Training
The CoC provides access to up-to-date information on mainstream resources available for program participants (e.g., Food Stamps, SSI, TANF, substance abuse programs) within the CoC’s geographic area through the DuPage Federation on Human Services Reform.
Provided with permission from Legal Aid Chicago, this video training explains and guides you through the process of applying online for public benefits using the Application for Benefits Eligibility (ABE). It describes the various types of public benefits, such as SNAP food assistance, Medicaid health coverage, and cash assistance for families with children (TANF) and the aged, blind or disabled (AABD Cash), and who is eligible to receive them. It explains the process of applying for benefits on behalf of someone else as well as how to follow up with the Illinois Department of Human Services after the application has been submitted.
