There are restrictions on residents receiving public aid, that is true, but it is not forbidden to all and not all are affected. Such restrictions are not an issue for USCIS. Rather than disect that issue, (because even that varies by state)suffice to say that as long as your uncle has made no false claim to citizenship Having received or receiving benefits will not affect his getting citizenship. Making a claim of citizenship when one is not a citizen, particularly to receive benefits, will result in a denial of the citizenship, revocation of his residency and deportation proceedings.
