FT-3200General Legal Aid Definition
Programs that provide legal counseling and/or representation for low-income individuals who need assistance in routine legal matters, usually in the area of bankruptcy, housing, public benefits, family law, elder law or immigration/naturalization.
FT-3600Immigration/Naturalization Legal Services Definition

Individuals from other countries who have come to the United States to live permanently.
YE-6500Lawful Permanent Residents Definition
Citizens of other countries who have been admitted to the United States and accorded the privilege of living there permanently. They may be issued immigrant visas overseas or adjusted to lawful permanent residence status once they reach the country.
Individuals who have fled their native country and have been given official permission by the government to settle permanently in another country. In the United States, refugee status is given to people who are outside their country of nationality and who are unwilling to return to that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution based on the individuals' race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion. Entrant status allows the individual to remain in the U.S., but does not confer true "refugee" status. Asylees are refugees who apply for this status while already in the U.S. (on student or tourist visas, for example).
YL-3300.4500Low Income Definition
