In order to do our part to help flatten the curve, The Immigration Project has implemented a number of measures in the face of COVID-19.

UPDATE APRIL 28, 2020: Physical closure of The Immigration Project offices will continue through June 1, 2020, in accordance with the extension of the Illinois Stay at Home Order.

As information regarding COVID-19 changes, and we hear about the growth in downstate Illinois cases, we at The Immigration Project have been given cause to evaluate our response policy. We want to be sure to update our clients, partners, volunteers and friends about the steps that we are taking as an agency in light of the pandemic, and alert you to changes to our normal operations. 

We are committed to taking the necessary precautions to protect our staff, interns, volunteers, and clients, and doing our part to help “flatten the curve.”  To date, we have implemented the following measures, which may be extended or changed as the situation evolves:

  • Our office will be closed to clients, volunteers, interns, and the public between March 23rd and April 12th.
  • All TIP clinics and workshops will be held remotely until May 1, 2020.
  • Our staff will be working remotely, as is feasible, from March 23rd to April 12th.
  • All non-essential business travel has been cancelled or postponed.
  • TIP has undergone facility cleaning processes.

If you, or someone you know, is in need of immigration legal aid please encourage them to continue to reach out to The Immigration Project via phone to (309) 829-8703 or e-mail to The Immigration Project is continuing to work to ensure access to justice for the immigrant populations of downstate Illinois, even during this difficult time.We will continue to monitor guidance and best practice from the CDC (Center for Disease Control), the State of Illinois, and the cities of Bloomington and Normal.
