Immigration Project: Consulting & Financial Design
Urban Advisors was engaged by a socially- oriented funder to evaluate the overall landscape for immigration finance providers within the United States. Urban Advisors spent significant time vetting financial intermediaries and the role they play in the immigration finance space. After compiling and scrutinizing numerous reports and research briefs, conducting phone interviews and surveys with key stakeholders and thought leaders in the immigration space, the Urban Advisors team compiled a case study document outlining the wide array of financial groups and loan programs designed to assist the 11 million immigrants to realize the goal of US citizenship. In addition, Urban Advisors has been engaged to help develop and scale creative financing structures to help accelerate the pathway to citizenship for immigrants that have not been able to successfully integrate into the financial mainstream.
