Request for Interest - Community Outreach
The NYIC is pleased to announce a Request for Interest (RFI) for New York-based nonprofit community outreach providers operating outside of New York City. The NYIC is applying for funds and, if we are awarded these funds, we intend to issue ten subcontracts of $25,000 each to community-based organizations (CBOs) support outreach to immigrant communities in under-served areas of New York State.

We are also issuing a separate RFI for legal service providers to work in tandem with subcontracted CBOs. CBOs selected as subcontractors will be expected to work closely with legal service providers, to refer individuals who have attended Know Your Rights sessions to attorneys as necessary and to support the families of individuals who are detained or deported.

If your organization would like to be considered for community outreach funding, please let us know by completing this form. Please note that we will review proposals on a rolling basis. We encourage members to submit expressions of interest by July 12, or sooner if possible.

Only current NYIC member organizations and those with pending membership applications will be considered. For information on how to become a member or renew your membership, see www.nyic.org/membership.

THIS IS OUR NEW YORK CAMPAIGN
This is our New York. After the recent presidential election, it is more important than ever for immigrant communities, friends and allies to band together to promote our shared interests. The campaign envisions work throughout the state on each of five following issues over the next 18 months and beyond:

- Outreach & Community Education - with training and resources from the NYIC, carry-out community action forums, intensive community outreach, and linkages to additional services, including legal services.
- Legal Services - provide time-sensitive services including consultations for those fearful of deportation including current DACA recipients and legal permanent residents seeking to naturalize, as well as developing innovative strategies to help more immigrants with limited resources to prepare for providing necessary services once the new landscape becomes clear.
- Combat Hate Crimes & Intimidation - support a tracking system for hate crimes, engage in community outreach and education, and work closely with law enforcement to ensure they enforce protections for immigrants across the state through the coordination of the NYIC.
- Advocacy & Organizing - collaborate to hold large-scale actions, build a base of immigrants and allies across the state, and fight to protect DACA, welcome refugees, push-back against deportations, and more.
- Soft Power - build bridges with non-traditional allies and with communities not traditionally sympathetic to immigrant concerns.
