Refugee Technical Assistance Program - 0 views

  •  
    The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), announces that it will award one cooperative agreement for the creation of a national one-stop source or hub for refugee technical assistance (TA), under the Refugee Technical Assistance Program. This national hub will provide coordinated, innovative TA and training to ORR-funded state refugee programs and ORR-funded refugee service providers, filling gaps where no other such TA exists. The TA provider is expected to foster and engage with a network of subject matter experts in the field, through consultancy or sub-contractual relationships. The overall goal is to equip ORR-funded state refugee programs and ORR-funded refugee service providers with the specialized TA, resources and training needed to appropriately address barriers that refugees may encounter while trying to access community-based services, education, employment, and specialized care. The TA provider will respond to refugees' unique challenges and needs, and leverage the strengths, talents and capabilities of refugees and their resettlement communities through a strengths-based approach to TA. The TA provider is also intended to help ORR-funded refugee service providers measure the effectiveness of their programs and services, and develop communication strategies that reflect the impact of the refugee program. The TA provider will conduct regular needs assessments of the field to determine the areas of TA focus, which may include refugee self-sufficiency through employment, trauma-informed refugee health, refugee child and family wellbeing, and program evaluation.
