2024 Capacity-Strengthening Grants for
Immigrant-Focused CBOs
Cohort B

The L.A. County Office of Immigrant Affairs (OIA) grant program is funded by the County of Los Angeles, allocated from American Rescue Plan funds, and administered by the Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM). This grant program provides direct investments to immigrant-focused Legal Service Providers (LSP) or Case Management Organizations (CMOs). 

Each organization will receive grants of $150,000, in addition to skill building and training, to provide case management services to immigrants to support successful legal outcomes.

In 2022, CNM facilitated the selection of ten immigrant focused community-based organizations (CBOs) for the OIA grant program. Learn more about the first cohort of grantees here.
