CDSS Awards Catholic Charities Additional Grant for Immigration Legal Services
The Catholic Charities statewide network of agencies has received $825,400 in additional funds from The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) to provide immigration legal services to immigrants across the state. The additional funding will be used to provide no-cost legal representation for 1,138 low-income immigrants.
This award increases the Network’s total funding for the 2016-2017 fiscal year to $5,961,750—the single largest award under the CDSS Immigration Services program in 2016-2017. Funding will be used to provide legal representation to immigrants for DACA, Naturalization, and other affirmative legal remedies.
