Chicago TPS and EAD Workshop Registration

This form was created by The Resurrection Project (TRP), a nonprofit organization in Chicago that helps immigrants navigate the immigration system, in collaboration with other immigrant-serving nonprofits. This form is intended for immigrants living in Illinois who arrived in the United States and are considering applying for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) or a work permit (EAD). By completing this form, you may be invited to participate in a workshop to complete your TPS or EAD application. 

You must complete ONE form per family unit. You will be asked to include names and information for anyone else in your family who is interested in applying for an immigration benefit.

After completing this form, TRP will verify with the city and/or state that you have received government-funded housing  in order to participate. Within 1-2 weeks, if you are deemed eligible to participate, TRP will send you a link to register to attend a workshop.
