Early Head Start Funding for Children of Immigrant & Refugee Families
Here’s a Health and Human Services (HHS) funding opportunity that may be of interest to the refugee community and those who provide services to them. A grant award is being made available through the Early Head Start (EHS) program to support the enrollment of approximately 55,000 additional low-income children and families as well as create new teaching and other positions in EHS. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is soliciting applications from public or private non-profit organizations, including faith-based organizations or for-profit organizations.
ACF is specifically seeking applicants whose program services propose “to support staff training, child counseling, and other services necessary to address the challenges of children from immigrant, refugee, and asylee families, homeless children, children in foster care, children of migrant or seasonal farm worker families, children from families in crisis, children referred by child welfare agencies, and children who are exposed to chronic violence or substance abuse.
