Program Description

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces the availability of funds and award procedures for fiscal year 2014 Refugee Health Promotion (RHP) discretionary grant program. The central purpose of this grant program is to promote health and mental health among newly arriving and vulnerable refugees. The RHP program is designed to streamline health promotion activities into refugee resettlement processes from arrival to self-sufficiency, as well as coordinate and support community-based outreach, education, and orientation around health and mental health services. The funding is intended to enhance access to health care services and complement existing medical assistance programs such as Medicaid and Refugee Medical Assistance (RMA), which includes refugee medical screenings (RMS). The RHP program is also designed to encourage partnership with community-based organizations.
