Refugee Family Child Care Microenterprise Development Program: The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) invites eligible entities to submit competitive grant applications for funding under the Refugee Family Child Care Microenterprise Development (RFCCMED) Program, formerly known as the Refugee Home-Based Child Care Microenterprsie Develpment Project. The RFCCMED Program helps refugees attain economic self-sufficiency by becoming licensed family child care businesses. Under the RFCCMED Program, ORR seeks to award three-year grants to eligible entities that will provide the intensive case management necessary to assist refugees in becoming licensed FCC providers. This includes, but is not limited to, accessing FCC and microenterprise development (MED) training; navigating the certification process and the process to qualify for state/county child care reimbursement; and providing post certification assistance. The program targets eligible refugee women, but is open to eligible refugee men as well. This program is not intended to develop new organizational training capacity in FCC or MED.
