Global Michigan - Refugee Services announces funding opportunity for Immigration Legal Services for Unaccompanied Refugee Minors

The Office of Global Michigan seeks proposals for immigration legal service providers to provide services for our URM populations.

The purpose of URM funding is to provide specialized services, consistent with state and federal child welfare laws and practices for refugees and other ORR-eligible youth populations. States and URM providers must prioritize services that will help participants in the URM program integrate into their communities, with emphasis on those services most likely to help children and youth become independent and self-sufficient, as appropriate to their age, development, and specific needs.

Under the URM legal services agreement, grantees can provide a range of specific services to youth who are in need of immigration legal representation. Those services include adjustment of status, applications and representation for legal permanent residency, application for U.S. citizenship, and continuation of legal services provided prior to approval into the URM program.

See attached RFP for additional details, including contact and submission information. Submissions are due by Feb 4, 2022.
