Services for Survivors of Torture Program: Assistance to Torture Survivors Through Direct Services


The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is interested in awarding up to 30 grants for direct services to persons who have been tortured. Allowable activities include physical, psychological, social and legal services which will be described in Section I. Funding Opportunity Description/Services for Torture Survivors of the published funding opportunity announcement (FOA). Applicants may propose all or, or a combination of, these services. If the applicant does not propose to provide all of the allowable services directly, the application should describe how the applicant will ensure that clients have access to analogous services, if needed. Partnerships may be formed with other community service providers in order to provide torture survivors with access to the full complement of allowable services. Training activities may also be conducted for community service providers that have access to, or work with, torture survivors. Applicants are encouraged to design projects that incorporate collaboration with health care, mental health, social service, and legal aid organizations as well as refugee and immigrant service providers in the community to increase their capacity for service provision to torture survivors.
