New funding opportunity from the Protecting Immigrant Families Campaign.
“As we wait on a final public charge rule to be issued, we know that many families are already choosing to dis-enroll from health, housing and nutrition programs due to fear of immigration consequences. Funding will support organizations in engaging with their networks and disseminating accurate and understandable information through trusted sources about the conditions under which public charge factors can be taken into account for immigration purposes – and when they cannot – both abroad and in the U.S.” – Protecting Immigrant Families

Coalitions may be national or state/local in scope, and either broadly serve immigrant communities and/or communities of color or specific populations. We encourage the submission of joint applications from groups to promote collaboration and coordination.
