Grant for Health Centers: HHS-2023-ACF-ORR-ZQ-0062Support for Trauma-Affected Refugees (STAR)

Grant Alert! The Administration for Children and Families announces $14,000,000 in funding for 28 refugee service providers. Through the delivery of trauma assistance services, the STAR Program aims for the sustained physical, social, emotional, and economic well-being of underserved refugees and other newcomers whose trauma experience impedes their ability to function effectively at home, school, work, or social settings.

ORR intends to achieve these goals through the following two objectives: To increase underserved newcomers’ access to appropriate and effective trauma assistance services at individual and family levels. To fund and foster the development of a network of culturally responsive providers (recipients) that can deliver holistic services to address the psychosocial needs of trauma-affected newcomers and to facilitate their successful integration and well-being.In support of the two objectives above, the STAR Program requires recipients to encompass a comprehensive approach to serve newcomers displaying symptoms of trauma that impede their ability to function effectively at home, school, work or in social settings.
