On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced a new policy that could allow nearly five million undocumented immigrants, mostly parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, to apply for temporary work permits and reprieve from deportation. The President’s Immigration Accountability Executive Actions also expand eligibility for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), among other provisions.

Given the scope and scale of this policy directive, SCG is proud to partner with Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) and a consortium of funder groups for a webinar series to help philanthropy understand this new policy and its far-reaching implications for immigrants in communities across the United States. 

The second webinar in the series will focus on:

  • Demographic profiles and geographic locations of eligible immigrants
  • Funding recommendations that address the most critical implementation needs and speak to a range of foundation priorities
  • Opportunities for grantmakers to coordinate, collaborate, and leverage their resources for greater impact.

This program is moderated by Mayra Peters-Quintero, Senior Program Officer, Ford Foundation and features Randy Capps, Director of Research, U.S. Programs, Migration Policy Institute.
