The 4-CT Card

Undocumented Assistance Program

A direct cash assistance program to support Connecticut’s undocumented population who were unable to receive federal aid during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Undocumented Assistance Program, our first direct cash aid program, set the blueprint for future 4-CT Card programs. An estimated 120,000 – 140,000 Connecticut residents were reported undocumented as of 2020, often working in high risk frontline jobs providing essential services and contributing significantly to our state’s economy. This population was impacted disproportionately by COVID-19 and remained ineligible for much of the state and federal relief efforts during the early onset of COVID-19. The Undocumented Support Program was designed to mitigate both financial and medical impacts of COVID-19 on the undocumented population in CT.

June 2020 – February 2021
– 4,857 cards and $1.4M distributed
– Over 14,000 people served in 138 zip codes
– Over 50% of card recipients stated they were likely to return to the FQHC from which they received their card
