Humanitarian Funding Information Details

This is an update to the earlier notification regarding the Spending Period End Date for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 humanitarian funding awarded to agencies to provide services to individuals and families encountered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) at the southern border, including maritime entrances.

In November 2023, the National Board approved and announced an extension of the FY23 Spending Period for humanitarian funding to April 30, 2024. Based on additional feedback, on February 9, 2024, the National Board approved an additional extension for the FY23 Spending Period to May 31, 2024. Only FY23 funding may be spent during this extended period. Any unspent funds from ARPA-H (FY21) and HR22 (FY22) that were awarded to agencies must be returned to the National Board. Please reference the FY23 Humanitarian Relief Funding Guidance for information about eligible expenses. All eligible expenses must be incurred by May 31, 2024. Any unspent funds at the end of the new spending period date must be returned to the National Board. Agencies that received FY23 advanced humanitarian funding will now have to submit Final Reports to the National Board by July 15, 2024. A reminder notification will be sent to agencies regarding the Final Report submission closer to the extended spending deadline of May 31, 2024.


Remember that emergency migrant care is now supported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Shelter and Services Program (SSP). FEMA, in coordination with Custom and Border Protection (CBP), will administer grants or cooperative agreements with state, local, and tribal governments as well as nongovernmental organizations through SSP. The SSP program also helps to support communities in managing migrant processing and preventing the overcrowding of short-term CBP holding facilities. More information about the program is available here.
