Apply by August 23 for WES Skilled Immigrant Integration Program (SIIP)

WES Global Talent Bridge invites communities to apply to the sixth annual cohort of its Skilled Immigrant Integration Program (SIIP). Launched in 2017, SIIP now supports 40 cities, regions, and states in advancing workforce inclusion of internationally trained immigrants and refugees. 

SIIP communities—from Alaska to Maine to Texas—have benefited from the program’s customized training, coaching, and technical assistance to advance sustainable state and local inclusion efforts. This year, SIIP will build on its success by supporting communities focusing on the following areas: 

  • Developing Initiatives in the Field of Immigrant and Refugee Economic Inclusion 
  • Creating Strategies to Promote Employer Engagement 

 Find out more in SIIP’s Request for Proposals and complete a questionnaire to apply (view PDF of questions here). 

 Interested communities should be convened by a lead agency that coordinates with a local network of multi-sector stakeholders. Join us for an information session on August 3 at 12:00 p.m. EDT to learn more about SIIP and the application process.  

Applications must be submitted by August 23, 2023. Thank you for your interest in advancing workforce inclusion.
