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.

Strategic Prevention Framework - Partnerships for Success (Short Title: SPF-PFS) - 0 views

  •  

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2018 Strategic Prevention Framework - Partnerships for Success grants. The purpose of this grant program is to address one of the nation's top substance abuse prevention priorities; underage drinking among persons aged 9 to 20. At their discretion, states/tribes may also use grant funds to target up to two additional, data-driven substance abuse prevention priorities, such as the use of marijuana, cocaine, or methamphetamine, etc. by individuals ages 9 and above. SPF-PFS is designed to ensure that prevention strategies and messages reach the populations most impacted by substance abuse. The program extends current established cross-agency and community-level partnerships by connecting substance abuse prevention programming to departments of social services and their community service providers. This includes working with populations disproportionately impacted by the consequences of substance use; i.e., children entering the foster care system, transitional youth, and individuals that support persons with substance abuse issues (women, families, parents, caregivers, and young adults).

Evidence for Action: Making Health a Shared Value Funding Opportunity - RWJF - 0 views

  •  
    The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for its Evidence for Action: Making Health a Shared Value program.
    The purpose of the program is to improve the foundation's understanding of the Action Area 1 drivers and outcomes related to health, well-being, and equity, particularly with respect to disadvantaged children and families. To that end, the foundation seeks evidence on the extent to which Action Area 1 drivers - mindsets and expectations, sense of community, and civic engagement - can be changed through intervention at the individual or population levels, resulting in better health, well-being, and equity outcomes.
    An ideal study to provide such evidence would experimentally manipulate a driver, measure changes in that driver, and then measure resulting health impacts. However, RWJF recognizes that a variety of constraints could preclude such a design within the parameters of this funding opportunity. Consequently, the foundation has established two key aims for funding through the program.
    1) Aim 1: To test the effects of specific interventions on the Action Area 1 drivers, in order to determine the extent to which they can be changed; and
    2) Aim 2: To establish evidence of causal relationships between Action Area 1 drivers and health outcomes.
