The Case Management Pilot Program (CMPP) is a federally-funded program to provide voluntary, trauma-informed, and culturally competent case management and related services to asylum seekers and other noncitizens in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Alternatives to Detention programs. CMPP services include, among others: mental health services; human trafficking screening; legal orientation programs; cultural orientation programs; other services that participants identify as priorities; 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. The other National Board members are nonprofit organizations with experience providing and evaluating case management programs for asylees, refugees, immigrants, and other noncitizens. National Board member organizations are: 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. Church World Service serves as the Board Secretariat and Fiduciary Agent.
CMPP was initially funded through the FY 2021 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Act, which provided $5 million to create a Case Management Pilot Program. Additional funding of $15 million was provided through the FY 2022 DHS Appropriations Act.
The National Board selected the first two CMPP sites and service providers on November 30, 2022, following a public solicitation process for the FY 2021 funding. CMPP launched in New York, NY, and Houston, TX. International Rescue Committee in New York and BakerRipley in Houston, together with consortia of local service providers, began providing services in 2023.
The second solicitation process for the FY 2022 funding began on July 25, 2023 and is now closed.
