Targeted Assistance

In order to assist ORR-funded agencies in providing the highest quality in services, ORR has funded a number of grants to organizations with technical assistance expertise in a particular area.

Civic Integration & Community Engagement

Bridging Refugee Youth and Children's Services (BRYCS) strengthens the capacity of refugee-serving and mainstream organizations across the U.S. to ensure the successful development of refugee children, youth, and their families by increasing information sharing and promoting collaboration at the local, state, regional, and national levels.

CLINIC promotes the dignity and protects the rights of immigrants in partnership with a dedicated network of Catholic and community legal immigration programs. CLINIC will establish a three year national citizenship capacity building project with the goals of increasing the number of refugees applying for naturalization and increasing the number of refugee resettlement organizations authorized to provide naturalization assistance to their clients.

Welcoming America, a returning grantee, looks to provide refugee resettlement organizations with the tools and support needed to enhance and sustain their community engagement and public awareness work in local communities, deepen their practices and local collaborations, and develop broader support for refugees which is essential to refugees’ longer-term civic, linguistic, and economic integration.

Organizational Capacity Building

Monitoring and Evaluation Technical Assistance logoData-driven decision-making is one of the Office of Refugee Resettlement’s six guiding principles. The Monitoring and Evaluation Technical Assistance (META Project) puts this principle into action, helping improve ORR-funded organizations’ capacity to collect meaningful data, manage it well, analyze it effectively, and use the resulting analyses to improve programs for refugees in the U.S.

META provides one-on-one technical assistance, learning resources, and trainings to help refugee services providers improve their monitoring and evaluation (M&E) practices. Contact us at META@Rescue.org to learn how META can help you.
