Borealis Philanthropy: Immigration Litigation Fund

The Immigration Litigation Fund (ILF) will support impact litigation challenging discriminatory, unlawful, and punitive immigration enforcement policies and practices including but not limited to those addressing issues of: identification and apprehension; detention; entry bans; criminal bars; immigration court; adjustment of status; and other enforcement-related actions. It will currently consider litigation projects that challenge immigration enforcement issues including COVID-19’s impact on immigration enforcement. Due to the current economic and health crisis related to COVID-19, ILF grants awarded will be general operating grants rather than project grants. Borealis asks that applicants to the ILF continue to request support for specific impact litigation projects focused on immigration enforcement issues but will provide grant dollars in the form of general operating support to allow organizations maximum flexibility to respond to changing and unforeseen needs and circumstances, that arise during the grant period.

Eligibility: Public interest legal groups and community-based organizations that are engaged in current or proposed litigation efforts.

Amount: Up to $75,000.

Deadline: June 1, 2020.
