Colorado Virtual TPS Project

We invest in nonprofit organizations driven to make a significant difference.

Colorado is experiencing an unprecedented surge of immigrants from Venezuela and other nations. Rose Community Foundation is at the forefront of the state’s response and is a grantee of the State of Colorado which has received federal funding to aid thousands of new arrivals. 

This project unites Rose Community FoundationRoché Immigration, and Purpose Aligned Consulting to provide swift and efficient support to recently arrived migrants seeking Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) in Colorado.

What is TPS?

The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security has the authority to designate a country for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) when conditions in that country temporarily prevent its nationals from returning home safely. USCIS may then grant TPS to eligible citizens of specific countries (or portions thereof) who are already in the United States.


What is the Colorado Virtual TPS Project?

This project assists migrants living in Colorado from eligible countries with obtaining TPS and EAD. Nonprofit partners identify TPS-eligible individuals and collect necessary information, while low-bono attorney-preparers virtually prepare applications. All services are provided free of charge to the client. Thanks to a partnership with USCIS, this is an expedited process for submitting applications and biometrics. More information available here (English and Spanish)


How can I Help?

If you are an immigration attorney or an accredited Department of Justice representative: we are in need of immigration attorneys to take on TPS and EAD (I-821/765) cases as preparers only, no G-28 needed. You can be located anywhere as everything is completed virtually. The project is offering a low bono rate of $175 per application packet. If you are an immigration attorney and speak Spanish or have access to interpretation, please sign up here

To support new immigrants in our community, you can also make a donation to the Newcomers Workforce Fund. For any questions or assistance with donations, please contact Rose Community Foundation.
