In 2017, PA is Ready! will build on the 2016 Service Model by creating a collective funding pool that will continue to use a collaborative grantmaking process led by immigrant-serving organizations to fund collaborative projects.

Funding can be used to support:

Services provided through these projects can include:

    • Application assistance for citizenship applications, status adjustment, and potentially DACA 2012 renewals and applications
    • Preparation of deportation defense packets
    • ITIN/financial literacy for immigrant communities
    • Fraud prevention & education/outreach
    • Internal training needed to achieve stated goals for above services
  • Organizational Mentorship Projects: a collaboration between a Community Based Organization and a Technical Support Organization that aims to build the capacity of the Community Based Organization in a specific area that achieves PA is Ready! goals, such as:
    • Community-led deportation defense organizing
    • Building access to legal service by supporting creation of BIA program
    • Financial services for undocumented communities

Proposals for the following will not be considered:

  • General operating or project proposals for individual organizations
  • Individuals or scholarship programs
  • Research, litigation, or legal expenses
  • Capital or endowment campaigns
  • State agencies or government programs
  • Businesses or business associations

  • Prevent the exploitation of immigrants through immigration service (or “notario”) fraud
  • Build immigrant leadership and organizing capacity to engage in local, state, and federal immigrant rights campaigns
