The San Francisco-based Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), established in 1979, is a national legal resource center that advances the rights of immigrants. This grant is to support the Defending Immigrants Partnership, which works to prevent the needless deportation of low-income non-citizens accused of crimes by providing defense counsel with the training, resources, and tools needed to defend them against the immigration law consequences of a criminal conviction. 

This grant is cofunded with U.S. Programs Criminal Justice Fund for a total grant of $400,000.
