Welcome Fund:

Expanding Community Engagement to Welcome Newcomers


Submission Deadline: Friday, July 29th, 2022, 5:00 p.m. ET. 

The Welcome Fund, a program of Welcome.US , is announcing a Notice of Funding to support a community organization or a consortium of community organizations that can serve as Sponsor Support Hubs, with the core functions to:  a) recruit and assist potential sponsors in partnership with Welcome.US;  b) serve as a central resource hub for sponsors; and, c) build a community of support for sponsors.

Welcome Fund is focusing its limited resources on developing Ukrainian Sponsor Support Hubs in the following U.S. metropolitan areas with high Ukrainian-American populations: Chicago, New York/New Jersey, Philadelphia, Sacramento, and Seattle. 

Applications outside of these regions will not be considered at this time. We will share lessons learned from the implementation of these grants to guide the development of sponsorship support in communities across the country.  The Fund will provide one-year grants, with a maximum of $300,000 per region.

We invite you to learn more about this Notice of Funding by clicking this link.  Also, join us for an optional information webinar for an overview and answers to frequently asked questions about this Notice of Funding. Register now: Thu., Jun. 30, 1:00 p.m. ET or Tue., Jul. 12, 1:00 p.m. ET.
