ECDC Co-Sponsorship Pilot Program

With support from the Community Sponsorship Catalyst Fund, ECDC is excited to pilot co-sponsorship programs at our local offices. At its heart, co-sponsorship creates opportunities for communities to play a key role in supporting refugees and other forcibly displaced individuals as they settle into their new homes.

In co-sponsorship, refugees are paired with groups (e.g. faith communities, businesses, civil society organizations, clubs, groups of individuals) who provide clearly defined financial and/or in-kind contributions and volunteer services to support a refugee welcome and integration over a set period of time.

If you are interested in forming or joining a co-sponsorship group and welcoming a refugee family at one of ECDC’s local offices, please fill in the form below.

ECDC ACC D.C. Metro is launching a co-sponsorship program for Afghan SIVs. If you would like to co-sponsor an Afghan SIV family, please indicate this in the form below.
