Refugee Technical Assistance Program


The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), within Administration for Children and Families (ACF), announces the availability of funds for the Refugee Technical Assistance (RTA) program. The RTA program is intended to assist ORR funded refugee-service providers, hereafter referred to as "refugee-service providers", in their response to specific challenges or needs in refugee resettlement. ORR will award cooperative agreements to qualified organizations with experience and demonstrated capacity to provide innovative technical assistance to refugee-service providers. The goal of the RTA Program is to provide innovative TA support on national and individual levels to direct service providers that are funded by one of ORR's discretionary or mandatory grant programs to improve the quality of services provided to refugees and support the long-term civic, economic, and linguistic integration of refugees in the United States. ORR plans to focus on the following categories: community engagement and public awareness in support of refugees' long-term integration, the creation of mechanisms to support and enhance self-sufficiency of refugees, and capacity building activities that will improve the quality of services provided by refugee-service providers.
