Opportunity Title:

Fiscal Year 2024 Shelter and Services Program – Competitive (SSP-C)



Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)


Opportunity Number:




As directed by Congress, SSP makes federal funds available to enable non-federal entities to off-set allowable costs incurred for services associated with noncitizen migrants recently encountered and released by DHS. As stated in the FY 2024 appropriation, the primary purpose of SSP is to “reliev[e] overcrowding in short-term holding facilities of [CBP].” Recipients of SSP may also seek grant funds for renovations or costs associated with modifications to existing facilities in support of individuals who have recently been released from the custody of CBP. Refer to Appendix A of the NOFO for allowable activities.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has committed to bolstering the capacity of non-federal entities to receive noncitizens after they have been processed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and released from a DHS facility. DHS is committed to ensuring appropriate coordination with and support for state, local, and community leaders to help mitigate increased impacts to their communities as outlined in the DHS Plan for Southwest Border Security and Preparedness, issued on April 26, 2022, and updated on December 13, 2022.

The goal of SSP is the safe, orderly, and humane release of noncitizen migrants from DHS short-term holding facilities.

The objectives are:

  • To provide funding to non-federal entities that serve noncitizen migrants recently released from DHS custody to temporarily provide shelter, food, transportation, acute medical care, personal hygiene supplies, and labor necessary to provide these services; and
