Free TPS assistance from CARECEN

Starting on Friday, January 29, the Central American Resource Center (CARECEN) will provide free assistance to low-income Haitians who live in DC filing for TPS (Temporary Protected Status).

CARECEN is having an information session (with French translation) on Friday, January 22, at 2:00 pm on TPS.   The session is being held at 1460 Columbia Road, NW C-1.   At the session, Haitians wanting to apply for TPS can get information on eligibility criteria, documents needed, and the application process.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a division of the federal Department of Homeland Security, may grant TPS to eligible nationals of certain countries who are already in the United States when conditions in the foreign country prevent the safe return of their nationals.   The Department of Homeland Security has designated Haiti a country incapable of accepting the return of their nationals.   Under this program, eligible participants may stay in the United States for 18 months and work.
