Support for Trauma-Affected Refugees (STAR): The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) invites eligible entities to submit competitive grant applications under the new Support for Trauma-Affected Refugees (STAR) Program for Fiscal Year 2023. The goals of the STAR Program are the integration and successful achievement of sustained physical, social, emotional, and economic well-being of those underserved refugees and other newcomers eligible for ORR services (hereafter referred to as “newcomers” for simplicity) whose experience of trauma is impeding their ability to function effectively at home, school, work or in social settings. For further details including newcomer eligibility criteria, please see Section I. Program Requirements, Enrollment Criteria.ORR intends to achieve these goals through the following two objectives:To increase underserved newcomers' access to appropriate and effective trauma assistance services at both the individual and family level.To fund and foster the development of a network of culturally responsive providers (recipients) that can deliver holistic services to address the psychosocial needs of trauma-affected newcomers and to facilitate their successful integration and well-being.In support of the two objectives above, the STAR Program requires recipients to encompass a comprehensive approach to serve newcomers displaying symptoms of trauma that impede their ability to function effectively at home, school, work or in social settings. Using STAR funds, recipients will provide eligible newcomers with holistic and integrated case management services, including health, psychological, and social adjustment services directly. Through project-related activities, recipients will simultaneously enhance their capacity to serve such populations.
