Biden admin announces $300 million in grants to support illegal immigrants through DHS

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced the allocation of $300 million in grants through the Shelter and Services Program (SSP) aimed at bolstering support services for migrants who came over the border illegally and are now in the US. 

Of the total amount, $275 million will be immediately distributed, with an additional $25 million reserved for later in the year to accommodate evolving operational requirements. The funding will primarily assist with temporary shelters and other associated costs related to housing and services for illegal immigrants navigating the immigration system.

In addition to this allocation, DHS has announced an extra $340 million through the Shelter and Services Program-Competitive grant program, set to be disbursed by the end of the fiscal year. These funds aim to further enhance support services for illegal immigrants across the country.
