Immigrant Justice Legal Services (IJLS) Grant

Friday, July 12, 2019

The Immigrant Justice Legal Services (IJLS) grant program supports the provision of legal services to the DC immigrant population, as well as language access services to other grantees to effectuate the legal services provided.

Mayor Bowser’s IJLS program is a national model for providing legal services that relate to immigrant justice and assisting residents on the pathway to citizenship. The program has a broad focus, touching a wide range of Washingtonians – torture survivors, DACA recipients, and survivors of domestic violence, Dreamers, TPS holders, and others who want a chance to become citizens.

The $2.5 million IJLS grant program in FY2020 offers one-time grants of up to $400,000 to CBOs with a current and valid 501(c)(3) status, as well as private organizations, associations and law firms that plan to mobilize pro bono talent or skilled immigration attorneys and legal professionals to provide immigrant justice legal services.
