Immigrant Integration in Northern New England

This project brings together funders, practitioners and community leaders to learn about the opportunities and implications of immigration and demographic change and to explore grant making opportunities in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. We publish educational materials about immigration integration practice in a variety of sectors including health, the workforce, education and economic well-being. We sponsor, design and organize free learning opportunities and briefings in partnership and consultation with local and regional funders, community-based leaders and national organizations.

The event provided the opportunity for Northern New England Funders and Philanthropic Advisors to hear from and interact with local community leaders with the goal of informing grantmaking strategies for maximum integration. Case studies and national scale best practices were discussed to further understanding on the topic. This event was designed as a follow-up to the Funder’s Briefing on June 3, 2016.
