The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces the availability of funds for the Direct Services for Survivors of Torture (DS SOT) grant program.
The main purpose of the DS SOT grant program is to increase survivors’ access to
holistic, strengths-based, and trauma-informed services to assist them in the healing and recovery process.
Under this grant program, direct services are provided to refugees, asylum seekers, asylees, certain immigrant classes, and United States citizens who have been tortured on foreign soil.
The program requires a holistic approach to service delivery that involves providing medical, psychological, legal, and social work services to promote healing from the effects of torture.
All of these services are to be provided either directly by the grantee or indirectly through partner organizations and/or affiliates.
