Refugee Microenterprise Development Projects

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is pleased to announce the availability of funds for the Refugee Microenterprise Development Project. ORR has supported microenterprise development projects since 1991 through the award of discretionary grants to a variety of public agencies, community economic development agencies, local mutual assistance associations, and voluntary agencies. The broad goals of this program are to:

1. Assist refugees in becoming economically self-sufficient by owning and managing a small business,

2. Provide seed money to refugee serving organizations to start and develop microenterprise program that will serve refugees at sustained and expanded levels, and

3. Help mainstream organizations develop the experience of serving refugee populations.

In order to achieve these objectives, award recipients under this announcement will provide pre-business and post-business technical assistance as well as capital to refugee entrepreneurs.

Apply by June 10th.  http://www.acf.hhs.gov/grants/open/foa/view/HHS-2013-ACF-ORR-RG-0569
