Award of an Urgent Single-Source Grant to Heartland Alliance, Chicago, IL
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) announces the award of a single-source grant for training and technical assistance on incoming Lesbian, Gay, Bi- Sexual and Transgender (LGBT) refugee cases to Heartland Alliance, Chicago, IL, for a total of $250,000. The additional funding provided by the award will support services to refugees through May 31, 2012. The current resettlement network has limited understanding of the issues and subgroups. Heartland Alliance will develop training and technical assistance resources, including capacity building and service delivery, specifically targeted at assisting newly arriving LGBT refugees. Heartland Alliance will have the opportunity to receive a continuation award at the same amount in FY 2012, which will provide the grantee with a two-year project period.
