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.

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.Start Further Info
