The Refugee Health Promotion (RHP) grant program supports refugee health literacy and access to health and emotional wellness services. The RHP program is awarded to states, Wilson-Fish agencies, and Replacement Designees who promote wellness activities for refugees and other eligible populations through a streamlined, statewide approach. It provides services beyond what is allowable through the Refugee Medical Screening (RMS) and Refugee Medical Assistance (RMA) funding. Grantees should focus on recent arrivals and those that have been in the country two years or less, but still continue to face serious health challenges.
The goal of the RHP program is to deliver a range of health services from attending health orientation and education classes, to accessing health services and obtaining affordable ongoing health care.
