FEMA & CBP Advisory


FEMA and CBP to Hold Listening Sessions for Shelter & Services Grant Program

FEMA and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will co-host virtual listening sessions with stakeholders to discuss program requirements for the new Shelter & Services Grant Program.


The 2023 Consolidated Appropriations Act (H.R.2617) establishes the Shelter and Services Program. This grant program aims to support the sheltering and related activities provided by non-federal entities, including a limited amount for facility improvements and construction, in support of relieving noncitizen overcrowding in short-term holding facilities operated by CBP. FEMA will administer grants or cooperative agreements with tribal nations, state and local governments, as well as non-governmental organizations. FEMA and CBP will work with these governments and organizations to identify eligible costs of providing temporary shelter and related services to individuals released from Department of Homeland Security custody.

FEMA and CBP will host listening session opportunities with stakeholders to inform implementation of the Shelter and Services Grant Program.



Two virtual listening session opportunities will be offered using the Zoom for Government platform.
