The FY 2021 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Act provided $5 million for a Case Management Pilot Program. CMPP will provide voluntary case management and other services to noncitizens in removal proceedings, including undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers. CMPP services include, among others: mental health services; human and sex trafficking screening; legal orientation programs; cultural orientation programs; connections to social services; and departure planning and reintegration services for individuals returning to their home countries.
CMPP is managed by a National Board chaired by the DHS Officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties and is comprised of nonprofits with experience providing and evaluating case management programs for asylees and refugees. National Board member organizations include: Church World Service, Catholic Charities USA, and The Center for Migration Studies of New York.
The National Board is responsible for awarding funds to eligible local governments and nonprofit organizations to provide CMPP services.
