Effective January 1, 2024, Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants benefits will increase by 3.2 percent.  This increase is because of the Social Security and SSI 3.2 percent cost of living adjustment (COLA) and the amount of CAPI benefits is linked to the amount of SSI benefits.

The COLA increase will also increase the presumed value of in-kind support and maintenance, the allowance for ineligible children in deeming situations, the sponsor’s allocation in sponsor deeming situations, and the allowance for parents in parent-to-child deeming situations.  (ACIN I-66-23, November 9, 2023.)
