The application period is now open, and submissions will be accepted through Oct. 27 by 5 p.m.
The initiative’s goals include evaluating, sharing, strengthening, and implementing best practices from the pandemic response and services for immigrant communities into the post-pandemic recovery period and beyond.
This announcement follows OIA’s first cohort of grantees in 2022, aimed at helping immigrants and their families recover from the pandemic. The Center for Nonprofit Management an organization with a proven track record of strengthening nonprofit capacity, serves as grant administrator on this initiative.
The eventual 2023 cohort awardees will focus on ensuring expert legal representation and access to vital support services that address clients’ unique needs, specifically through case management efficiencies and innovations.
Grant program participants will be selected through an application process administered by CNM in partnership with OIA. A total of 18 organizations will be selected for $125,000 grant awards.
