Office of Refugee Resettlement
In FY 2006, ORR awarded a competitive Services for Survivors of Torture grant to the Tides Center/Utah Health and Human Rights Project in Salt Lake City, Utah. The original project period was from September 30, 2006 through September 29, 2009. The Tides Center served as fiscal sponsor and legal entity of the approved project. The Tides Center provides essential financial, human resources, and administrative services to philanthropic projects such as the Utah Health and Human Rights Project (UHHRP) while enabling them to become independent agencies. UHHRP has now completed the process of becoming an independent agency and is formally separating from the Tides Center on January 31, 2009. The Tides Center has requested permission for UHHRP to assume the grant. UHHRP has agreed to this request and will continue to function with the scope and operations of the grant remaining unchanged.
