Summary: In FY 2006, ORR awarded a competitive Services for Survivors of Torture grant to the Center for Multicultural Human Services (CMHS) in Falls Church, Virginia. The original project period was from September 30, 2006 through September 29, 2009. CMHS served as fiscal sponsor and legal entity of the approved project. As of March 31, 2008, CMHS ceased operations. CMHS has requested permission for Northern Virginia Family Service to assume the grant. Northern Virginia has agreed to this request. The effect of this deviation request is to transfer the grant from the initial grantee to a new grantee with the scope and operations of the grant remaining unchanged.
