$5 million dollar grant from The David & Lucile Packard Foundation for financial, technical and capacity-building support to nonprofit organizations and shelters providing front-line humanitarian and legal aid along the migrant corridor from Central America to the southern U.S. border.
With the help of this support, HIP will deepen its migration and forced displacement work in the region to:
- Strengthen first responders’ capacity to offer critical humanitarian, legal and social services to migrants;
- Strengthen the infrastructure of networks to allow for a more nimble and sustainable transnational network of first responders and advocates; and
- Work closely with grantee partners to influence positive narratives about migration and forced mobility.
